See the big picture this Weekend


EUROPEAN art collectors, step aside. Asian collectors are stepping up as major players in the global art scene, and top international galleries are all out to woo them - so much so that China's art scene is booming as it overtakes the UK as the second biggest art market in the world. In this Friday's issue of BT's Weekend magazine, we report on this trend as well as spotlight the top art shows to attend in Beijing and Hong Kong.

We also talk to Alessandro Bastagli, the straight-talking, flamboyant Italian fashion mogul who led a buyout of Shanghai Tang last year. He has plans to inject youthful appeal and Italian flair into this iconic Oriental label. Meanwhile, find out what's cooking at the newly launched hotel-cum-dining destination Ann Siang House; chill out by the beach or vineyard in Hua Hin; and for the fashion-forward set, check your knowledge of cult street-wear labels against our list.
