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.

ers on one charge would earn 5 credits for its maker according to previous equations, and in the draft proposal the credits will be redu

ced to 2.5, according to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.上海千花网

He added that the proposed policy encourages better technology as more efficient power consumption will earn more credits.

上海千花网女神会所Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, es

pecially international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.

Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy envi上海千花网

ronment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.

The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will

上海千花网女神会所be made in China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.

So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.

The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 units上海千花网

during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.

上海千花网女神会所The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.

They would still be considered fossil-fueled but re-classified as “low fuel consu

mption passenger vehicles” and thus will incur less negative points than traditional vehicles.

Under the current system, automakers in China are obliged to make up for a portion of the negative points they incur whe上海千花网女神会所

n they produce internal combustion engine vehicles with points won for producing new energy vehicles.

Analysts said the revision could see more traditional vehicles replaced with hybrids, because when automakers prod

uce hybrids. The proposed change came as a surprise, some experts and industry officials said, because the gove上海千花网女神会所

rnment has never before given any preferential treatment for hybrid technology.

“The new proposed policy is a roundabout way to promote hybrid cars,” said Cui in a social media post.

China will maintain a prudent monetary policy in the year’s second half, with potential policy adjustments depending mainly on

the domestic economic situation and price levels, a senior central bank official said on Friday.上海千花网女神会所

Having noticed the recent monetary easing in some foreign central banks and the United States Fe

上海千花网女神会所deral Reserve’s strong message that it will make a cut later in the policy rate, the Chinese centra

l bank has decided not to change its monetary policy stance, while continually reducing the actual financing costs o

f enterprises, said Sun Guofeng, head of the monetary policy department of the People’s Bank of China, the central bank.上海千花网

“In the second half, we will maintain the liquidity at a reasonably ample level through leveraging

diversified tools and strengthening macroeconomic policy coordination,” said Sun, adding that mo

derate money supply growth can support the country’s high-quality economic growth.上海千花网

Sun made the remark after the central bank released major financial da

ta on Friday. The broad money supply, or M2, increased by 8.5 percent by the end of June

上海千花网女神会所from a year earlier. The growth rate had remained unchanged for three consecutive months starting in April.

Chinese banks issued yuan-denominated loans of 9.67 trillion yuan ($1.41 trillion) in the first six month

s, and 1.66 trillion yuan was newly extended in June, up from 1.18 trillion yuan in May, the PBOC said.上海千花网

Total social financing, a broad measure of credit and liquidity in the economy, increased by 13.23 trillion yuan in the firs

上海千花网女神会所t half, compared with an increase of 10.05 trillion yuan in the same period last year, officials said.

“Rapid growth of total social financing proved that the financial se

ctor is enhancing support for the real economy,” said Ruan Jianhong, head of the central ba上海千花网

nk’s Statistics and Analysis Department, at a Friday news conference.

上海千花网女神会所The RMB, compared with some other major currencies, has performe

d well in the first half, and its current exchange rate is basically in line with the economic fou

ndation, as the International Monetary Fund determined recently, according to Sun.上海千花网女神会所

“In the future, the market will play a decisive role in determining the RMB exchange rate, and we will take macro-pruden

t measures when it is necessary to maintain the exchange rate at a stable and reasonable equilibrium,” Sun added.

ential sale to Taiwan of $2.2 billion in arms, considering the move to be a sign that they will be able to count on the U上海千花网品茶微信

nited States for help should there be a military confrontation with the Chinese mainland.

And for those in the US who consider Taiwan as a pawn the US can use上海千花网

a hedge to maintain the status quo in which they can regard Taiwan as an independent entity.上海千花网品茶微信

Tsai and her followers should know that their exhilaration is nothing but whistling past the

graveyard. The more arms the island buys from the US, the less safe the island becomes as efforts to bu上海千花网

ild up the island’s military capabilities only serve to send a clear message of secessionism to the mainland.

Tsai and her followers should not underestimate the mainland’s resolve to defend the nation’s sovereignty and territ

orial integrity. The farther the island moves away from the possible peaceful reunion w

ith its motherland, the more resolute the mainland will become to take the island back by force.

By building up its military defense, Tsai is playing a game of brinkmanship.

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d

上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch

ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da

rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所

anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se

上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.

“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu

nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所

Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d

ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.

上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int

elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.

Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所

First, China has undisputable sovereignty over islands and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea, backed by a wealth of historical and legal basis,” Shao said.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never been obstructed. “There i

s no issue over the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea,” he said.

However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese mar

itime territory and airspace, and has conducted intense intelligence gathering and special drills in the region.

“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,” Shao said. “As a result, the PLA

has installed necessary defense equipment on the islands in accordance with security needs. This is within

the natural rights of a sovereign state, and a necessary measure to counter those provocative actions.”
