Only in China

22 Sep

The only way in which my words can possibly complement the images below is by merely explaining verbatim the situation that is occurring in each one.  Not to suggest that you can’t see what it going on in the photos with your own eyes…but even after witnessing these actions with mine, I had a hard time believing it.

Picture This:  Bumper to bumper traffic across 12 lanes in pouring rain on the streets of downtown Beijing.  This makes the work of a New York City garbage man look like a cake walk.

Picture this:  A metal ladder balancing on a plastic bucket turned upside down, resting against live power lines.  Seriously.  You can’t make this up.  Also, look closely…no hard hats or any sort of protective gear.  Where is OSHA when you need them?

Surprising Similarities at Gucci and Alberta Ferretti

22 Sep

Clearly, the two biggest shows for the opening day of Milan Fashion Week were Gucci and Alberta Ferretti.  The most interesting aspect for me is that even though each designer found her inspiration in a different way (Alberta Ferretti – Tribal and Urban Jungle & Frida Giannini for Gucci – Art Deco) the collections actually have some surprising similarities.

Do you agree?  Which do you prefer?  Please do share!
