Shopping by night in TAIPEI


The Taipei Tonghua Night Market is a busy nightly market located a short walking distance from Taipei 101. Tonghua Street is lined with many stalls serving up almost any kind of Taipei night market cuisine. There are a few intersecting alleys that are also lined with clothing and food stalls. This market has a more local Taipei feel and you won’t find as many tourists here compared to Raohe and Shilin. It’s worth a visit.

It ‘s almost the sunset, we’re on a deserted beach.
Our protagonists, a woman and a man about 65 years old, Madame and Monsieur, are sitting on a towel in front of the sea. Madame is very cheerful and tries to convey his happiness to Monsieur, who seems bored and much more interested in his newspaper than to her. Madame, in a pinch, and the other travels in the memories … We see them at the age of 18-20 years, their first kiss during the summer holidays; to 25, who make peace after a fight and have fun in the water; 30, married, and still dressed in bridal gowns, they run happily on the sand; 35, at dawn after a night of fun. Madame Let’s review today, the sea, which continues to call Monsieur, to join him in the water, while bathing and having fun alone. Monsieur did not even look at her, his only interest is in the newspaper. Then Madame leaves the water and comes up to him, hug him for it … but something happens …

Fendi is an Italian luxury fashion house whose specialties include fur, ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes, fragrances, eyewear, timepieces, accessories and furniture. It was launched in 1925 by Edoardo and Adele Fendi, as a fur and leather shop in Via del Plebiscito, Rome; but today is a multinational luxury goods brand owned by LVMH. Karl Lagerfeld is the creative director.

Fendi’s Double F logo comes from “Fun Fur” named by Karl Lagerfeld.

Fendi’s signature yellow color came from its first luggage collection launched in 1933.

In 2014, Fendi started making plans to use drones to show its catwalk fashions.

Fendi invested more than 2 million euros (approximately $2.7 million) to help restore the Trevi Fountain in Rome designed by Nicola Salvi in 18th century.

Fur is Fendi, Fendi is Fur: Fendi is synonym of “Haute Fourrure”. Fendi the only fashion house having its own fur atelier.

Fendi is famous for its capacity to adopt innovative techniques to make fur lighter, modern and more fun Fendi’s four major lines of full fur include High Fur (Sable, Chinchilla, Bobcat), Atelier (unlined mink with sophisticated craftsmanship), Icons (Travel mink, Pequin, Evening mink) and Novelties (Fox, Beaver, Persian Lamb,…)
