建国70周年系列之见“衣”思迁爘犜词悠



新中国即将迎来70周年华诞。70年的时光流转见证了我们生活翻天覆地的变化。21世纪报策划推出一个四集系列视频,从衣、食、住、行四个方面回顾70年里中国人生活方式的变迁。在本期的“衣”中,我们兜兜转转,来到了北京大栅栏里闹中取静的百年绸布老店瑞蚨祥。



Where are we going today?

今天咱们去哪儿啊?


Today we’re going to this place, Refosian. It’s one of the most famous silk fabric shops in China. This picture was taken in 1928. I wonder what it looks like now.

咱们去瑞蚨祥,中国丝绸店老字号之一。我手里这张照片拍摄于1928年,不知道这家店现在是否风采依旧。



I did some research. Refosian has a long history. It was founded in 1862 in Shandong. Today we’re visiting its first shop in Beijing, opened in 1893.

我做了不少功课呢。瑞蚨祥历史悠久,始建于1862年的山东,咱们今天要去的是它1893开在北京的第一家店。


Refosian is well-known for its top quality silk. The first national flag of the People’s Republic of China, raised over Tian’anmen Square in 1949, was made of Refosian’s silk cloth.

瑞蚨祥经营上等丝绸布料,1949年天安门广场开国大典上升起的第一面中华人民共和国五星红旗就是用瑞蚨祥的绸布制作而成。



Yeah! They also make traditional Chinese clothing. Some of their techniques are part of Beijing’s intangible cultural heritage. I wonder if I could try on a qipao today.

那是当然啦!瑞蚨祥还可以订制传统中式服装,它们的很多传统制衣工艺已经被列入北京非物质文化遗产。要是今天我也能试穿一件旗袍就好了。


Here we are! Let’s go in and check out theirhistoric store.

就是这里啦!跟我一起进去看看这家百年老店吧。



Well, THAT was definitely the best experience I’ve ever had inside a fitting room. It felt like I was wearing a piece of history. Now I hate my regular clothes. But probably this is unfair. Who says the T-shirt I’m wearing now wouldn’t become another piece of history?

进过那么多服装店的试衣间,刚刚那次我一定毕生难忘,就好像我把“历史”穿在了身上。相比之下我自己的衣服简直普通到不能再普通。不过这样说它们似乎也不太公平,或许在遥远的将来,我的T恤配牛仔裤也将成为历史。



We’re visiting a mysterious restaurant in our next episode. Stay tuned!

下期我们会带大家探访一个神秘餐厅哦,千万不要错过!
