The The New York Times fashion feature "Intersection" comes to Beijing.
This section looks at street styles at one intersection of a neighborhood. This series has mostly been in the US and Europe thus far, but now is expanding into Asia. Beijing's Gulou neighborhood was once home to the royal elite, politicians and emperors. But today the old alleys and traditional courtyards are home to hipsters, hooligans, hippies — and of course, Chinese people that have watched their neighborhood transform into a lively region, filled with hidden bars, restaurants and cultural gems.
