Fitting in with Beijing’s fashion-conscious locals requires paying attention to the latest trends from worldwide runways. We advise you to be “chic yet discreet” and to wear layers to combat the cold temperatures. F/W 2011 revealed a color-blocking trend especially in “noir et blanche” ensembles – a combo that never goes out of season. Additionally, consider a fabric mishmash of fur with lace and leather, much like this year’s protagonists of Chanel, Celine, and Burberry. Galavante is totally enamored with the fur-and-wool Burberry coat, the fantastic and easy-to-match leather leggings, the romantic and versatile Jason Wu lace blouse, and the elegant Louis Vuitton logo bag in marina leather. Don’t disregard the red accents on your lips and nails or the Saks earmuffs, a must-have of our own Christine Drinan, Galavante’s CEO and Editor-in-Chief.
