Picture of the Day: My Melody
The power suits with giant shoulder pads are back, though of course in an updated design while the big hair is not.
Thanks to mainlanders we're seeing a resurgence of conspicuous spending, and UK band Duran Duran will be coming to town next month revisiting their hits like "Hungry Like a Wolf" and "Rio".
Hello Kitty has had enormous staying power here -- she still manages to melt the hearts of fans who are more than 40 years old -- whose names we will not disclose here.
But making a resurgence is My Melody as evidenced by this storefront window with the hooded bunny plastered all over b+ab in Causeway Bay.
The nostalgia is fun for five minutes, but surely designers can create some new characters? Or are we suffering from a brain drain?
