Coinciding with the rise of its economy, China’s nightlife has been experiencing an interesting development. Its economic power brought along a varied and colorful palette of events and parties across the country. This could have been mostly observed in the city of Shanghai, which has been China’s economic and financial center for decades. There, a young collective, called STD, an abbreviation for Sonically Transmitted Disease, has been catering the city’s cultural landscape with a sophisticated curation of famous DJs and music artists from overseas. Through to their two club venues, Arkham and Arcade, STD reaches thousands of music lovers and avant-gardes in Shanghai, which has led them to become one of China’s most sought-after music tastemakers.

For our Essentials series, the good folks behind STD shared with us their must-have items for an energetic night in one of their venues. Featuring a Saint Laurent Leather Jacket, ACNE Aviator Sunglasses, a pair of AIAIAI headphones, exclusively-designed rolling papers, vintage jewelry, and some select customized items, the list of Essentials gives us a good idea on what to expect during a night out in one of the world’s fastest-rising cities.
