The Chinese Grandfather, Liu Xianping, modeling for Yuekou is pretty much the best thing ever.
Not because he’s rocking those white tights harder than anyone since Blair Waldorf, but because, well, it just seems fun. It gives me hope that in my old age I will not just be eating pea soup and plotting my escape from an old age home. Instead, I will be modeling teen’s menswear. Just the way Liu Xianping is modeling teen womenswear! According to Offbeat China:
The Tmall store Liu has been modeling for is Yuekou, a female fashion store started this May by 5 recent college graduates. Liu’s granddaughter Ms. Lv is one of the five. According to an interview with Ms. Lv, it all started when one day her grandpa Liu came to help with unpacking: “He picked up one piece and tried to give some advice on how to mix and match. We thought it was fun so we started shooting.
His signature thing is the red tights and, the fact that it’s cool that someone’s grandfather is modeling these aside, the combinations just look really great. Though I will say I prefer Liu Xianping’s look when he’s not wearing a wig as opposed to the shots where he is wearing one:
But you should really go check out all of his looks (including the Gangam style one) for yourself, here.
