Well, we were showing in Paris, London and New York, but three years
ago we went into the mainland. We luckily found a showroom that could help us. The mainla上海千花网女神会所
nd’s market is hard, because stores are very new; brands might not have a website, just WeChat. But sales have
上海千花网grown from our first season to now and it has been significant. The mainland has overtaken my orders from Europe. And of cour
se, the scale is different. We have around 25 points of sale there now. So yes, we’re focusing more and more on the mainland.上海千花网女神会所
Do you design especially for the mainland market?
We do tailor some of our designs, yes. I sometimes follow trends, but we c上海千花网
are more about ourselves and our feedback from the buyers, who will tell us what sol
d well last season. We take that and move forward. But if the buyer says a particular fit works, or a certain color, we上海千花网
will expand on those things. So we take about 50% of outside advice and add 50% of our own ideas.
The media seems to portray the brand as being for fashionistas, yet Cynthia & Xiao doesn’t feel entirely that way. Would you agree?
上海千花网女神会所Yes. It’s for fun kinds of girls who feel comfortable with themselves. We
do get some cool fashionistas who might wear our stuff and some Hong Kong KOLs [key opin
ion leaders]. But I don’t see our brand as a KOL thing. I’d rather have more people wearing and touching the prod上海千花网
uct than a KOL endorsement. I also don’t have a massive inventory of stuff, so I don’t need some super high-profile K
上海千花网OL. It’s about the right balance.Hongkongers don’t really seem to support their local designers – or their artist
s for that matter, either. But isn’t the current digital age meant to be all about disruption, inclusion and youth?
The mainland is also such a different kind of vibe from Hong Kong. They like that “girl-next-door” look, which is very relatable. These上海千花网
influencers are really successful, but you don’t know who they are. It’s a different type of visibility.
We find color just works. When we started out, the palette was more muted, with navy and grey – the idea being that pieces
上海千花网女神会所could be mixed and matched. But as we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated more color – lots of it! [laughs] – like yellow, r
ed, orange, neon green… stuff that’s really in-your-face. And they sell really well for us. The consumers seem to love it.
What’s your best-selling piece?上海千花网女神会所
Our favorite shape is something we call “oversize”. For some girls, it could literally be a dress,
but you would have to wear something underneath. Let’s just say it covers the bottoms and is our best-sel
ling shape no matter what we do. Then again, they also don’t want something too long. They like above the knee. If you co上海千花网
ver the knee, you look short. And of course, the aim is to look both short and thin. In Sha上海千花网女神会所
nghai, we always go shorter – a more fitted shape. Sometimes we make longer pieces, too.
In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M
ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta
ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.上海夜网
The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.
上海夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T
rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t
he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.上海夜网
Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.
上海夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended
the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.
Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his
country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.上海夜网
But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C
上海夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.
Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has
been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro上海夜网
ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.
The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized
the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const上海夜网品茶微信
itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.
Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central上海夜网
task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con
上海夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi
ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.
their cars have a 155-kilometer range deficit compared to the lower-tier 2020 versions at a price that’

However, He Xiaopeng, chairman of Xpeng, said in a microblog cite
上海千花网品茶微信d by International Financial News these demands are unfair to the company. When
consumers compare the bare prices of the two types, He claimed, 2019 model buyers got lots of subsidies.上海千花网
An insider from Xpeng Motors told the newspaper the company started to promote a favorable poli
上海千花网cy by the end of May giving a total of 20,000 yuan to each consumer, and earlier buyers of 2019 G3 mode
ls affected by the government’s subsidy-cutting scheme have also been covered by the policy.
上海千花网品茶微信Therefore, the actual price paid by 2019 G3 buyers is comparatively lower than the 2020 G3 prices, the source added.
Xpeng Motors is not an exceptional case amid fast growth in the electric ve
hicle industry. In March, Tesla’s decision to adjust prices down also roused early bu上海千花网
yers’ anger, asking the company to subsidize the price difference or cooperate with them to return their cars.
But a lawyer interviewed by International Financial News said no legal ground exists to support these buyers’ requests.
上海千花网品茶微信Sun Shaojun, a motoring analyst, said Xpeng’s case represents a new
normal for the sector, as the electric vehicle industry sees exponentially faster development.
What makes Pablo Picasso such a quintessential 20th-century artist? It’s partly down to the visual ground he broke w上海千花网品茶微信
ith his Cubist painting, but some also has to do with the fact his interests extended far beyond painting.
Picasso’s innovations in perspective and technique dazzled the art wo上海千花网

As art historians and critics emphasize the visual ground he broke with his Cubist painting, Picasso’s poetry and oth上海千花网品茶微信

The artist did not begin to write until the age of 53. His literary endeavors上海千花网

As China launches garbage sorting work among cities at the prefecture l

A listed job to inspect garbage sorting could have a salary of 400 yuan ($58.24) per day, and t上海千花网

上海千花网品茶微信The sanitation market will be 200 billion yuan in the future, the website said, citing an industry insider.
As more cities carry out garbage sorting, demand for waste sorting store, collecti

Since 2018, with an updated policy, the authorities have been rolling out lists of specific上海千花坊
NEVs and small engine vehicles regularly for them to get tax cuts or exemptions.
上海千花坊Cui said the extended tax exemption to more NEVs this time will especi
ally better support the development of commercial NEVs, whose owners are m
ore sensitive to prices and taxes, because they usually own a large number of such vehicles.上海千花坊女神会所
Inclusion into the newest tax exemption list also endorses the quality and technical
上海千花坊capabilities of such NEVs, which will help the manufactures to build brand image and attract customers, he said.
Qiu Kaijun, an industry observer and founder of Evobserver, an influential social med上海千花坊女神会所
ia platform in the NEV industry, said the vehicle and vessel tax cut measures are part of the authorities’ bro
ader efforts to boost the development of the NEV industry, as they aim to encourage purchases of NEVs, although t上海千花坊
he effects are not as influential as other incentives including financial subsidies and rebates of purchase tax.
The NEV industry in China has been developing very fast in recent years, as the co上海千花坊
untry pushes forward with efforts to build a globally competitive automobile industry.
上海千花坊女神会所There are two main points that Chinese audiences are unhappy with. First, in the trailer there are shots of Fujian, which is ab
out 3,000 kilometers away from historical home of Mulan in history. Second, the heroine Mulan, starring Cr
ystal Liu, wears heavy makeup that is appealing to Westerners’ eyes, not Chinese eyes.上海千花坊
Perhaps the criticism is unfair as Disney has designed the movie to please Western audiences, who c
上海千花坊女神会所are more about the story than the historical facts. That’s why Chinese audiences should not expect the f
ilm to have accurate Chinese elements even though the story is Chinese and almost all the leading actors are Chinese or
at least ethnic Chinese. It shows Chinese elements through the eyes of Westerners.
In 2018, NEV sales in China maintained robust growth of 61.7 percent
year-on-year, although the broader auto market sales contracted 2.8 percent year-on-y
ear, according to statistics from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
For the January-May period this year, China’s NEV production and s
ales reached 480,000 units and 464,000 units, up 46 percent and 41.5 percent y
ear-on-year, respectively, according to Xin Guobin, vice-minister of industry and information technology.
China had 340 million motor vehicles by the end of June this year, while the number of NEVs had reached 3.44 mi
