Introducing your new style icons: the senior citizens of Chinatown. Chinatown Pretty is a signature style worn by 'pOh pohs' (grandmas) and 'gUng gungs' (grandpas) everywhere. It�s a mix of modern and vintage, high and low, handmade and store bought. Chinatown Pretty is also a life philosophy that combines resourcefulness, creativity, and a knack for finding joy even in difficult circumstances. Andria Lo and Valerie Luu have been interviewing and photographing Chinatown�s most fashionable elders since 2013. The seniors share tips for staying stylish on a budget, nuggets of wisdom, and moving personal stories about immigration. This book collects stories from San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and Vancouver, as well as a bitesize history of Chinatowns in America, in one gorgeous hardcover with textured case and glossy bellyband.
