In fact, whether it is the new Chinese style, or the "Chinese style" that was often said a few years ago. Whether it is in the fashion industry or in everyone's perception, the most typical representative of Chinese style must be inseparable from the cheongsam.
Hollywood Girl Anna May was one of the first women to show the cheongsam to the Western world. Her cheongsam style became a source of inspiration for many designers later, among them the pirate Lord John Galliano (we will talk about this part later).
From the 1950s to the 1960s, "Chinese style "It began to be popular in European and American countries, and the most popular actresses at that time—Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly both wore cheongsams.
There are a large number of garment factories in Hong Kong exporting cheongsams to Western markets. A New York clothing manufacturer named Bud Berman seized the business opportunity, set up a factory in Hong Kong, and improved the cheongsam to be more in line with Western aesthetics.
At that time, the cheongsam began to be very close-fitting, highlighting the thin waist and hips of women as much as possible. Many of the cheongsams we see now are tailored similar to Hong Kong cheongsams in the 1960s.
Wearing Chinese-style cheongsam on the face lacks charm, but seeing classic fashion icons like Grace Kelly regard cheongsam as a "distinctive fashion", I am somewhat proud.
reached 90 In the 1990s, John Galliano, a pirate who loved oriental elements, contributed countless amazing cheongsam designs during his time at Dior. Dior's 1997 autumn and winter series of women's clothing is inspired by Huang Liushuang's poster style.
The whole series The most famous dress in the show is the dress that Nicole Kidman wore to the 69th Academy Awards. This look was also named "Oscar's Top Ten Red Carpet Dresses" that year.
Strict sense Generally speaking, this dress has no stand-up collar and buttons, so it is not considered a cheongsam. But the tailoring and side slit design can still see the soul of the cheongsam. The lustrous silk fabric, the embroidery on the neckline and the tassels on the back have both Chinese charm and John Galliano's exclusive romance.
These two The "new Chinese style" became popular in 2000, and the cheongsam has returned to fashion again. So, what does the popular cheongsam look like this year?
Improved cheongsam became popular and successfully entered the clothing of young people One of the reasons for this is that they are more convenient to move around than the traditional cheongsam. Indeed, if a piece of clothing cannot adapt to changes in society, its ultimate fate is to be placed in a museum.
Wearability increased, and the style of the improved cheongsam also began to diversify. The graceful and dignified traditional cheongsam is certainly a kind of beauty, but the younger generation prefers individuality in dressing, and different styles of improved cheongsam satisfy different groups of people.
The Chinese designer brand SHUSHU TONG made the cheongsam into the brand's iconic silhouette, retaining the usual ghostly girly style. Cheongsam doesn't have to be close-fitting, it can also be an A-line skirt.
Cheongsam by Kim Shui, an Asian American designer brand It is the favorite of European and American hot girls. The extremely close fit and high skin exposure allow hot girls to show off their figures.
Virtual Idol Miquela also wore Kim Shui's modified cheongsam suit. This one splits the cheongsam into upper and lower pieces, and many new Chinese improved cheongsams have made a similar attempt - changing a dress into a suit.
This top also hollows out the traditional teardrop neckline to make it bigger, exposing the waistline, and the overall "spiciness" rises sharply.
Spanish brand De La Vali also loves cheongsam very much. Most of the cheongsams of this brand will keep the stand-up collar and buttons, but some changes may be made on the sleeves and skirt.
For example, this pink cheongsam, which is popular on ins, has made the sleeves into puff sleeves, and added ruffles to the skirt, making it more girly.
De La Laura Castro, the founder of Vali, also often posted photos of herself wearing her own cheongsam on her ins. Short cheongsam with cowboy boots is a very popular way to wear new Chinese style.
De La Vali's latest polka-dot cheongsam tailoring this year It is more similar to the pink one, but the polka dots obviously make it more retro, with a decrease in sweetness and an increase in salinity.
blogger Jen Ceballos directly used it with a motorcycle jacket, stockings and mid-tube boots. It can be seen that there are no style restrictions on the improved cheongsam, and everyone can completely decide its aesthetic direction according to their own style.

But we feel that we can be more open about this matter. We have our traditional wearing method, and they have their own understanding and development. This kind of cultural hybrid may burst out more vitality . As long as there is no malicious intent, we should allow these "mashup" interpretations to exist.
Except jade , European and American babes also try various Chinese totem jewelry most often. It can also be understood that for Westerners, totems are relatively simple and easy to understand.
