It’s not yet a month after the New Year but Bangkok’s hardly short of new excitements thanks to new boutique opening and new handbag, timepiece and sneaker launches from the likes of Hermès, Adidas, Bao Bao Issey Miyake and MCM. Scroll down to discover all the latest and finest things you have never known you need, until now.
Running might not be an ideal workout considering the current polluted smog. But it doesn’t hurt to dream of a good morning run in the whole new Adidas Ultraboost 19. Actually, the latest outing is the Triple White with a facelift. Coming in 4 colours, Refract is the third in the series, and features stunning multi-tonal weave.
Recently honoured at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Genève’s award for The Artistic Crafts category, Hermès ARCEAU Robe du Soi features 2,200 tiny juxtaposed leather squares forming a horse profile inspired by the Hermès “Robe du Soir” silk scarf designed by Florence Manlik in 2018.
Bangkok’s favourite handbag export BOYY is pretty late in coming to Siam Paragon, but it’s worth the wait, after all. Introducing the brand’s very first concept pop-up space Bamboo Den, the two designers draw inspiration from their own obsession with Chinese food and their numerous quests for favourite Chinese restaurants in every destination they visit. Oriental motifs are interpreted with fantasised imagery, enriched with clean and minimal details, creating a surreal splendour for all the bag ladies amidst the centre of the busiest shopping mall.
Until January 28, 1F, Fashion Gallery, Siam Paragon.
The English designer is welcoming fans to her new home in Bangkok at the EmQuartier, featuring the new design concept. Sustainability and intimate atmosphere are two keywords: the shop is embellished with the custom-made freestanding fixtures standing on the light grey floor, the design of the interior follows a new concept developed with Stella personally which pairs back the space by drawing more focus on the collection itself.
