Burberry 黑、藍標將收攤 45 年歷史告終

英國知名精品品牌 Burberry,最近取回在全球各國的授權合約,很多哈日族到日本都喜歡採購的 Burberry 黑標,也即將收攤,在明年起停止販售,Burberry 特別針對日本人身材,打造比較適合東方人穿著的「黑標」服飾,將結束 45 年的品牌歷史。 這是很多人到日本旅遊的血拚目標,日本版的 Burberry。民眾:「好像是藍標比較貴,黑標是日本製的。」 不管專攻白領的 Black Label 黑標,或者講究年輕設計的 Blue Label 藍標,都是英國方面授權給一家日本廠商「三陽商會」在地製作,但想買日版 Burberry 請快,因為它明年就要停產。日本新聞報導:「Burberry 企圖縮小授權商品規模,三陽商會與其持續協商,最後雙方在明年春夏季結束後,將終止授權合約。」

英首相布朗評論罷工抗議是不對的

“That’s not the right thing to do,” Brown said on BBC television when asked about walkouts last week at energy plants across Britain. “It’s not defensible.” 在被 BBC 訪問時也針對他 2007 年所說過的 “British jobs for British workers” 口號作出說明:(當時就已經一堆人罵說這句口號是偷自 BNP,而更有人戲謔他說的應該是 “British Wogs … Continue reading

Formula 51

台灣翻譯叫做「毒家交易」,英文片名又另稱為 The 51st State(一聽就知道跟英美淵源有關聯),沒想到是華人執導的電影!不過我挺喜歡這部電影所呈現的特殊風格!想找一些中文的影評或資料,卻發現少得可憐? 之前出差到英國過幾次,對英國一直有種嚮往,這部片後半段全在英國拍攝,片中出現的景物都跟我曾看到過的幾乎百分百相似。主角 Samuel L. Jackson 的演技自然是不用多說,更吸引我的是,片中的粗話、俚語、衝突(不管是毒品、國家種族或是球隊)(特別是 Elmo McElroy 剛到英國時稱呼 Fish & Chips 這標準道地食物為 national disaster 時真是笑翻了。不騙你,我才不過到英國出差幾回而已,要我連著兩餐都吃這個我都受不了了… ),都很有趣也有其涵義在。 整部影片節奏很明快,主軸就是一個剛畢業就吸毒被抓栽跟斗,但很聰明的專業藥劑師遊走於英美兩國毒販間(前往英國後,始終穿著蘇格蘭裙),最後要到了錢,也幫助了英國 Liverpool 的地頭蛇與殺手前女友復合。 特別要提的是,扮演女殺手的 Emily Mortimer 跟她在 The Lord of the Ring 或是 Paris, Je t’aime 裡頭的表現截然不同。我很喜歡她直視鏡頭時,流露出的那種氣質美,該怎麼說呢,溫柔婉約中的知性美吧,英國女孩子好像多少都會給人這種感覺…。 也有不少人很喜歡她喔,底下是有人對她的精采介紹… 小家碧玉的極品:Emily Mortimer … Continue reading
