As a pioneer of luxury lifestyle, a day in the life of Prestige involves a constant immersion in life’s finest things. While we are indeed privileged enough to be the first to experience the best of luxury living, not everything catches our eye the same way. Amongst all the glamour of Thai savoir-faire, there are always a few standouts — the ones among many that manage to grab our attention for just a little longer, and truly hold a place in our hearts. Which is why we have Prestige Pleasures, where we gather for you a roundup of our favourite picks each month. From what’s top on our wish-list, to the experiences we most enjoyed, scroll to see what we loved in July.
Charmed by the retro, contemporary vibes of L’Heure du Diamant, Julianne Moore has decided to showcase the collection over the decades in a series of stunning pictures — and we love them. Going from modernist 1960s, to the 70s hippie movement and the disco decade of the 1980s, the Academy-awarded actress truly transcends time, taking us back to glamorous eras of the past in a beautiful resurrection of these different periods. And why does this specific collection receive such honour? Since 1969, Chopard has garnered a reputation for both premium watchmaking and jewellery heritage, through jewellery watches that combine diamonds and dials created from exquisite minerals. Fast-forward to today, and the timeless elegance has remained — the latest watches to join the L’Heure du Diamant collection come with dials surrounded by diamonds, enhanced by bracelets textured in gold and adorned with everything glamourous from opals, to malachite, turquoise and tiger’s eye. chopard.com
Thai fashion and lifestyle brand Greyhound is back with yet another exciting collaboration — and this time, they’ve teamed up with fashion and home decor label Marimekko. The result is a pop-up of the Finnish brand’s eye-catching prints and vibrant colours in Greyhound Cafe’s Groove CentralWorld branch, where Marimekko has taken over a section of the venue with elements of its decor, ranging from signature home accessories, to the iconic and playful textiles. While just the aesthetics alone are enough to win us over, it doesn’t just stop there. Food-wise, Greyhound cafe plans to serve 11 of its most popular dishes on Marimekko’s range of tableware. Which means, of course, that guests will have the opportunity to dine amongst the brand’s flowery prints, and enjoy the likes of shrimp pad thai on fabulously patterned plates with cheeky utensils. Do keep in mind though, that this takeover only lasts till September 15, so be sure to check it out! greyhoundcafe.co.th
This season, Dior has given some of their signature bags a bit of a revamp, and we are beyond excited. Iconic bags including Lady Dior, the Saddle bag and Diorama have been adorned in an ultra-matte black finish, resulting in the epitome of elegance. Any self-respecting Dior enthusiast will know that since their debut, these bags have made waves in the fashion scene, constantly reappearing in more contemporary versions and materials that build an exchange between Dior’s heritage, and the brand’s spirit of innovation. With this latest interpretation, we can’t help but swoon ever so slightly over the bold, sophisticated allure of the new dark black look. Matte all the way! dior.com
Thailand’s leading real estate developer Sansiri has been having quite a year, with major developments both locally and internationally. We recently saw the property maven step into new grounds, with the opening of The Standard, London, a project where Sansiri is a major shareholder. Why is this exciting? For one thing, this marks the first time ever that The Standard has opened a hotel outside of the United States. Collaborators from all across the globe have joined hands to curate the property, resulting in design codes that allude to everything from political and intellectual thoughts, to punk rock bands and the mischievous underbelly of its’ King’s Cross location. standardhotels.com
