Chinese model Ming Xi shows off her 1-year-old daughter’s designer bag collection worth over $14,000

Model branded bags for daughter
  • Chinese model Ming Xi was criticized online for flexing her 1-year-old daughter’s branded bag collection worth 110,000 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $14,012) in a video uploaded to Xiaohongshu on July 10.
  • Some of the designer bags include a miniature Louis Vuitton Nano Speedy bag that costs 14,100 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $1,796), a Chanel handle bag with chain for 18,000 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $2,290), a Chanel bucket bag with chain priced at 31,800 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $4,050), a Dior Micro Lady bag at 29,000 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $3,690) and a Dior Micro Saddle bag for 21,600 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $2,750).
  • “It's a really, really small bag and is super cute! I feel my daughter can use it in the future,” Ming said about the Louis Vuitton bag. “It's very trendy to go retro nowadays, so I can buy a bigger Louis Vuitton Speedy and carry it together with her — I think that would be so cute!"
  • Explaining her reasoning for why she bought the accessories now instead of in the future, Ming said, “I'm afraid that once the trend passes then they won't produce it anymore, so I thought, 'I'd better quickly buy them!'”

Chinese model Ming Xi showcased her 1-year-old daughter’s collection of branded bags, including Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton, in a video posted last month.

The video, uploaded to Xiaohongshu on July 10, shows Ming, 33, displaying the tiny bags one by one in front of the camera.

Dior sparks appropriation backlash in China for skirt that resembles ancient wraparound garment

  • Fashion label Dior was accused by Chinese state media of cultural appropriation for allegedly basing the design of its recently launched skirt on the Chinese horse-face skirt, a wraparound garment originating from the 10th century Song dynasty.
  • Called the “ma mian qun,” the skirt features pleated fabric on both sides and became popularly worn by women during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties.
  • “The so-called Dior silhouette is very similar to the Chinese horse-face skirt. When many details are the same, why is it shamelessly called a ‘new design’ and ‘hallmark Dior silhouette’?” an opinion piece from state-run outlet People’s Daily read.
  • A description on Dior’s Hong Kong site described the clothing item as a “flared skirt” with “pleated style” as “a hallmark Dior silhouette, the mid-length skirt is updated with a new elegant and modern variation.”
  • Currently priced at HK$30,000 (approximately $3,820) at the brand’s physical stores in Hong Kong, the Dior skirt has since been marked as “sold out” on the Hong Kong site and taken off the mainland China site.

A Chinese state-run media platform has accused French luxury label Dior of cultural appropriation for allegedly basing the design of its recently launched skirt on a piece of ancient Chinese clothing. 

According to the People’s Daily, the mid-length skirt Dior branded as its “hallmark silhouette” has a striking similarity to the Chinese horse-face skirt, a wraparound garment originating from the 10th century Song dynasty.
