Hello again and yes, another warm welcome from Aim2d, snuggled in the north east corner of Beijing- Shunyi. We are entering what is often called the “Silly Season” so why not be a little silly?Prada – a name synonymous with high end, luxury fashion garments, and maybe, for some yachting. Or more precisely high speed, high stakes international yacht racing a la the America’s Cup. But today we are going to take a more down to earth look at Prada – from the closet and the bedroom down to the kitchen and the chopping board. Prada cabbage anyone?
Firstly though, a refresh of one of our favourite China marketing, business, tech and social news media; Think China. Think China is a Singapore based Ezine and as an off shore publication it often highlights a more objective perspective. This helps foreign marketers build a clearer background snapshot of what is going on at grass roots in China. As in the case of Prada cabbage.
What is Prada Cabbage?
Don’t worry Prada is not, at least yet, designing or making clothes out of vegetables. Although I guess if you were hungry . . Let’s not be that silly. Actually it was more of a very clever marketing and PR stunt Prada orchestrated in co-operation with one of Shanghai’s popular markets – the place where savvy folk go to buy fresh eggs, meat, fruit and vegetables. Ahhh, now maybe you’re getting the picture? Now we hand over to “Think China” for: Chic and Trendy Wet markets are the In-thing in China
