This episode of “Taiwanderings” features Publish Brand, the innovative creator of “Jogger Pants” and one of LULA’s great friends. The Publish team toured Taipei, Taiwan during their Asia trip last April, with LULA 101 serving as their host and tour guide. While out and about, the Publish crew was treated to the amazing sights and sounds of Taipei, including its night markets (offering stinky tofu and unknown meat products), crazy cafes, shopping districts and nightclubs complete with top DJs and, of course, hot go-go girls.
Since this was also a business trip, Publish was also here to visit key retailers like Phantaci and the Prime Store. Drawing attention wherever they visited, Publish was interviewed by the media, including KEEDAN and MILK magazines (see the full interview here:)
In just two short days, the Publish crew had a phenomenal time during their stay in Taipei. They tried different foods, met exciting new people, and found new inspiration for the brand in a city half a world away from their headquarters in coastal Southern California. The Lula 101 crew had big fun hosting Publish in Taipei, and we look forward to sharing more adventures with them soon!

Here are some photos for those you are interested.
Josh’s first ever pop-up shop is located in a country he has never been to before – Taiwan. See what he thinks about this journey, and what happened on the event day. Also see how he wandered around in the city of Taipei, and trying new, cool, or even bizarre food.
Josh’s journey started from wandering around Taipei city(in the morning. After a series of interviews in the afternoon, he made it to some of the famous spots such as Long-Shan Temple ”龍山寺”, Wan-Hua Sector ”萬華區”, and Hua-Xi Street ”華西街” a.k.a. Snake Alley. He had a great experience and a big culture shock with Taiwanese culture and foods on the very first day.
This is the day when all the events will be unleashed. And Josh finally visited his very first pop-up shop.
When Josh first stepped into the store, he was greeted by the CLSC’s theme decor filled with their signature red and “world map” pattern design. We invited “IP Lockers” to perform “Locking” as a starter, following by a quick interview and social party (special thanks to Heineken!). We also have a CLSC backdrop which allow selfie lovers to preserve this precious memory forever.
Josh decided to shoot lookbook photos in Ximending “西門町”, which is most of the young people’s favorite location. Ximending Station Exit #6 is the busiest area in Ximending, and that’s exactly where we started our shooting. The main purpose of this was to create some local contents. Josh was surrounded by a lot of people and we’re wondering what he was doing.
Cruising through the city, Josh headed to the Skate Park with some cool graffiti paintings to do more lookbook shooting.
On the last day of his trip in Taiwan, we took him somewhere nice to visit. Tamsui “淡水” is the northern part of Taipei, an actual riverside town. Josh had a blast at the castle called Fort San Domingo ” 紅毛城” that was originally built by the Spanish in 1629. After this awesome trip in Tamsui, he enjoyed Shinlin night market “士林夜市”where all the good foods are served.
John visited Endless Sun (Xiao Mao) who is one of the most famous tattoo artist . He got a cool tattoo “經典台灣” which means classic Taiwan!
Not only for business, Josh had a nice trip to Taiwan for these 4 days. We hope we can have him again in Taiwan.
