Places | Dong Liang

new wave


Walking down Fumin Lu in Shanghai’s Jing’an part of town, I almost missed Dong Liang; it comes off quite demure next to the surrounding Chinese hustle. Inside I found it equally soft spoken. However, once I learned that the concept store is about “discovery”, I realized that its understatedness is its charm. Inside and out its a hidden gem.

Tasha, who runs the Shanghai location, is stylish, gracious and speaks perfect English.  She helped to curate the store’s “exclusively Chinese” offering; a collection of China’s best independent designers; most of them still unsung. She’s also a great resource, talking with Tasha about the designers is like having your very own crash course on China’s up and coming fashion scene.  If you’re in Shanghai or Beijing (they have two stores there as well) it’s definitely worth a visit.
