Triple-Major Presents: Ideas for a Perfect Weekend Retreat
In Triple-Major we want to show you a more interesting retail space by breaking the inertia of categorizing items by brand and gender.
So in this month we came up with the theme 'Ideas of a Perfect Weekend Retreat', distinguishing the store in different parts by various ways of enjoying a weekend, such as the drawing section which is about watercolor paint items and illustration albums, then the home section which is filled with items that carries full of comfortableness. Also we are collecting fun suggestions of how to spend the weekend from our visitors through questionnaire! 
This theme will last until the end of March, come by and have a visit if you are in Shanghai!
Triple-Major Shanghai space is now exhibiting 'she is not here' illustrations by Ya Yi, and we have changed our visual displays in store to match her artworks in yellow and blue color tone. 
The items in Gardening section are tightly linked to natural and botanical elements. In this section displays the German label Anntian that is skilled in converting textures of plant into knitwear pattern, and exquisite wooden house decorations by Shanghai’s independent furniture brand Origin Wood Work. 
This is our Experimentation section. Displaying items from the American knitwear label ALL Knitwear, which is about richness in color and fascinating combination of patterns, making every single item like the output from experimentation of colors and knitwear. 
The Drawing section features items that are related to watercolor and hand paint, as well as illustration albums from independent illustrators around the world.

And how do our staffs spend their weekend? Well, we keep working...
On 1 1/2 floor, we created a mini zoo by displaying animal-look inspired shoes from Triple-Major’s own label, and a series of humorous animalic style accessories from Hong Kong designer UUendy Lau. 
The Exhibition section is currently exhibiting ‘she is not here’ by illustrator Ya Yi. This solo exhibition originates from one of her artwork series from past, which is named ‘she is not here’, hand painted in yellow and blue, depicting various moments that were lost in time.

Here comes the most adventurous and fun section of this month's theme on our third floor space! We set up the ‘Human vs Aliens’ scene by using garments with monstrous elements from Daniel Palillo and Walter Van Beirendonck dressing the Alien up, to let him confront the human warrior who wears futuristic style garments.
