Asia is having its major moments in fashion. Victoria’s Secret made headlines earlier last week when it announced its next international runway pit stop: Shanghai. After last year’s Parisian extravagance, the lingerie label is tapping on Eastern opulence this 2017. Expect Asian ‘It’ models — Liu Wen, Sui He, Ming Xi, et al. — tackling bigger wings.
Not too far from the location of her second Victoria’s Secret show, Bella Hadid had a splashing time in Beijing. In town for a massive Bulgari bash, the model made time for a temple run, dressed to the athleisure nines. Also in China was DJ Mademoiselle Yulia, who opted for a sharp I-mean-business dress — taking on night strolls in underlit alleys seriously. Meanwhile, fellow Japanese trailblazer, model Kiko Mizuhara, went incognito in a white Kabuki mask for a circuit around Tokyo.
Yulia and Mizuhara are the Asian cool cats that need no introduction, but they’re not the only style-setting natives to the city. Meet Coco and Yoshi: The former is the six-year-old daughter of Harajuku’s cult-favourite thrift shop Funktique owners, while the latter is a 14-year-old vintage shop junkie who also happens to be Helmut Lang’s youngest muse.
From Liu Wen flaunting her latest Puma campaign to rapper Kendrick Lamar opting for the Korean label of the moment as his stage get-up, here are the week’s best fashion Instagram posts you might have missed.
