The 2nd floor of Cuiwei Shopping Plaza features numerous brands of women's wear. One brand that caught my eye during my visit was Lavinia from Italy.
Lavinia is quite popular in Beijing, as evidenced by its name showing up at just about every mall and department store in the capital. According to the shop assistant, all apparels are designed in Italy, while their clothes are made in both Shenzhen in south China and Italy.
The shop assistant showed me some of their new arrivals. I took a close look at a beautiful dark coffee-colored one-piece dress (RMB 578). This sleeveless dress featured a simple yet exquisite design, with a crown leather strap decorated in the middle. Its materials included cotton, terylene, and urethane elastic fiber.
Generally, the apparels come in two levels of prices: RMB 500 to RMB 1000, and over RMB 1000.
What I appreciated:
One piece dress in coffee hue, simple design
What customers appreciate:
High quality, reasonable price
Delicate, light bone china
Unique Casual Wear Retailer from Japan
Tailor-made Qipao at low prices
Handmade purple clay teapots
