The Dresses Fashion Girls Will Be Wearing This Summer

It probably comes as no surprise that in my role as an editor, I spend a rather large chunk of my workdays researching emerging fashion trends, share-worthy shopping finds, and buzzy or on-the-rise brands. Every once in a while, however, I’m lucky enough to have one or any combination of the above categories simply present itself to me, instead.

SHANGHAI — Sun, sand, sea and shop.

Sanya has figured perennially over the last few decades as one of China’s top holiday destinations, but this summer the beachy area on the island of Hainan is expected to pull in an especially young, moneyed crowd — and brands and retailers are taking note.

Over the May 1 Labor holiday, China Duty Free locations in Hainan island including the world’s largest single-building duty-free location in Sanya pulled in 300 million renminbi, or $42 million, from 70,000 visitors. While that was an encouraging sign already of a bounce back, on June 1, the central government announced its new plan to further develop the Hainan economy.
