Nop, these are not my latest street-style pics, these are vintage photos taken presumably in China in the 80s after the Cultural Revolution, when dressing western-style was no longer frowned upon. I found them at a vintage book market which takes place in the courtyard of Shanghai's Wen Miao Confucian Temple. I spent Sunday morning there trawling through (and buying!) Chinese vintage comics, a copy of The Little Red Book (in English), and of course a few vintage photos...
