Thai brands welcome the hot season with cool new designs

From quirky designs, to floral prints, to vintage silhouettes—we have gathered you the best looks from various collections you can try on this season.   GREYHOUND ORIGINAL Greyhound Original’s new collection reworks office wear into deconstructed, oversized outfits finished with edgy detail and quirky prints.   MILIN In the Milin Limited company, office workers are on a race to impress their Prince Charming boss—this is the fictional story that gives life to Milin’s spring/summer 2018 collection. The label’s signature style has been injected with mannish silhouettes and details, but still keeps Milin’s brand of rebellious sensuality with the use of exotic prints—from python to crocodile—as well as feather details, faux fur, costume jewelry and ribbons.   ASAVA Asava’s spring/summer 2018 collection looks to the female subconscious, using it as inspiration to create elegantly timeless pieces that soar above fast-moving fashion.   KLOSET For summer 2018, Kloset draws inspiration from the life and works of Japanese artist Naomi Okubo to create four seasonal prints—Springfield, Ruffle Flow, Westerland Rose, and Artist.   ISSUE Bohemian local brand Issue once again explores different cultures, from East to West, to create pieces for its new spring/summer collection.

Arty&Fern Eyewear

Arty&Fern Eyewear

One size doesn’t fit all is the inevitable truth, which is why custom-made eyewear may be the answer for those who can’t seem to find frames that perfectly fit their faces. Let us introduce you to Arty&Fern, probably the only made-to-order eyewear maker in Bangkok. Partners in love and business, graphic designer Aniknun “Fern” Eiamong and advertising creative Chanakan “Art” Ukosakul founded their namesake eyewear brand in 2013. Arty&Fern eyewear uses only the finest materials, from cellulose acetate that’s flexible and durable to high-quality joints and nose pads. The atelier accepts only advanced reservations so they can focus on each customer and guarantee a certain modicum of privacy. After acquiring the customer’s requirements and measurements, the duo will work on the designs, which will be submitted to the client for approval, before Art starts crafting the glasses by hand, a process that could take from 10 to 15 days. All in all, the whole process will likely take a month and will cost you around B12,000 apiece. If you’d rather not wait but still want a piece from Arty&Fern, the designer duo also has a sunglasses collection inspired by Siamese cats, which now retails at Siam Center.

Pila Studio

Pila Studio

Emerging men’s fashion house, Pila Studio isn't your typical tailor. Nipon Pila founded his namesake brand three years ago when he was a publicist (for a financial bank, can you believe it?) and studying fashion design part-time. “Growing up, I was exposed to the work of tailors and, before I knew it, I became passionate about it. Tailoring has been around for centuries and, I believe, will still be around in the next hundred years. Suits are classic. It’s a power piece that transforms a man into a gentleman.” Pila pieces are reminiscent of vintage styles and look to history for inspiration. “I borrow elements and silhouettes from the past, and reappropriate them into the styles of today.” Hence, his designs feature loose silhouettes, bold colors, interesting fabrics and small, edgy details. His pieces have caught the eye of many local musicians and entertainment personalities, including the guys from pop bands Jetset’er and Season Five.
