Even Covid-19 couldn’t stop the two top Thai designers of Tube Gallery – Phisit Jongnarangsin and Saxit Pisalasupongs – from teaming up with the internationally renowned Belgian-born artist Christian Develter to create a truly eye-popping Resort Wear 2020 collection.
The newly created fashion collection, Delveter X Tube Gallery Resort Wear 2020 is, by their definition, and ours, “When Art Meets Style in Paradise”. The colours, lines and geometric patterns of the collection’s swimwear, kaftans, evening and cocktail dresses are enough to transport you to a different time and place, far away from lockdowns and stringent virus measures.
But this is not the first time Tube Gallery has collaborated with Develter. In 2013, the two came together to create a summer collection, ‘Chin Un-Masked’. It’s no surprise that the collection was the talk of the town. It was even presented to Queen Mathilde of Belgium (then Duchess of Brabant) during her state visit to Thailand back in 2013.
The concept behind the Develter x Tube Gallery Resort Wear 2020 lies in the arts, journeys and fashion. To bring this collection together, the Tube Gallery team made a special visit to Delveter’s studio in Siem Reap, often the sighting of many artists, art collectors and designers from around the world, a visit that was teeming with inspiration and good ideas.
The typical lively graphic designs of Tube Gallery were combined with Develter’s artistic finesse to craft a collection that includes a wide range of items for both men and women. Saksit and Phisit paid close attention to the texture of the materials they used so that wearers of the pieces would feel comfortable and well prepared for summer, using light linen, cotton and satin throughout their designs.
Be sure to take a look at these lovely and lively designs, and let us know what you think!
