卷首语 EDITOR'S LETTER

Vantage Shanghai - - CONTENTS 目录 -

The wait is finally over for the millions of Game of Thrones fans around the world: the seventh season will premier on 16th July. Personally, I can't wait! To get you in the mood, in this issue we have interviewed Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who is also featured on our front cover. You may know him better as Queen Cersei's twin brother, Jaime Lannister.

Game of Thrones, produced by HBO, has now become one of the most successful TV series of all time. But it is not the only game in town. These days there is a remarkable amount of high-quality TV available to watch. There is a war waging to produce the best TV, with the two Internet giants Netflix and Amazon Prime, leading the charge. The BBC has also raised its game in recent years, producing some fine historical drama. In the last year, 400 high-quality original TV shows were produced, compared to less than half this number five years ago. The clear winners of this “TV war” are of course the viewers. We have never had such a feast of entertainment. Let's hope this war never ends!

When you are not watching your TV, we hope that you will find time to enjoy some of the other inspiring feature articles in this issue. We report on a stunning architectural design project in Shanghai from Zhou Jun, a thought-provoking new art exhibition from Lin Ke, and we also feature creative new works from my favorite artist Joyce Ho from Taiwan, China. And, as usual, we bring you the best of fashion and travel.

And whatever you do, make sure you don't miss Here’s the Scoop in our Highlife section, where we report on where to find the very best ice-cream in Shanghai. It's going to get hot in Shanghai this summer, but the VANTAGE team will always help you stay cool!

对全球数百万《权力的游戏》粉丝来讲,漫长的等待即将告一段落——该剧第七季即将于7月16日首播,连我也有些迫不及待了!本期,我们就请到了剧中詹姆· 兰尼斯特的扮演者尼古拉· 科斯特-瓦尔道,让读者们进一步了解这位来自“君临大陆”的荧幕硬汉。

众所周知,《权力的游戏》这部由美国纽约有线电视网络媒体公司HBO制作的电视剧,堪称业内收视的标杆。不过,它并非一枝独秀。随着众多高品质电视剧需求的增长,两大互联网影视巨头Netflix和Amazon Prime正在各领风骚。近几年,甚至连BBC也开始将目光转移到了网络电视剧的制作上,力求在历史剧领域分一杯羹。据统计,仅去年一年,就有近400部高质量的原创电视节目诞生。而5年前,这个数字还不到现在的一半。不过话说回来,无论制作方怎么争,这场“电视剧作品大战”的最大受益者无疑还是观众。对于从来没有经历过如此大规模娱乐盛宴的观众们来说,自然是希望这场“大战”能够永不停息!

当然,看罢了电视剧,我们也希望读者们能够从本期杂志的选题中发现更多的生活灵感:从建筑师周军令人惊讶的设计项目,到艺术家林科极富思想性的艺术展,以及我本人最中意的中国台湾艺术家何采柔最新的作品,应有尽有。当然,在本期杂志中,我们依旧为读者带来了第一手的时装与旅行资料。还有,请一定不要错过我们这一期慢生活中的《一口环球》:在专题里,我们将带你吃遍上海最好吃的冰淇凌!盛夏将至,《贵在上海》编辑部总将带你一起,享受最清凉的夏日时光!
