Just this past Friday was Vogue Thailand’s Fashion’s Night Out, and I got to see the retail scene bring it Bangkok style. Being only their second VFNO, the evening was most definitely larger than life with many a T-pop star, celebrity and magazine folk in their shiny shoes on the mall scene. It seems as though malls are taking over the world, not to my excitement, but I guess this is something to accept as a product of our time. It had me running between three of Bangkok’s most lux malls (a large distance to cover on foot mind you!)
Without doubt, the highlight of my night was meeting the Kapital team at Heavy Selection store’s newest flagship at Siam Paragon. This indigo and textile nerd convention was my cup ‘a tea with all the right trimmings like BBQ corn, bourbon, natural dyeing action, and sakura rivet madness. It is always a pleasure to be up close to the incredibly detailed pieces that are Kapital denim. Designer Kiro Hirata came along with the Kountry team to show us all how it’s done, finishing off with an auction of Kiro san’s personal pieces that were beautifully worn in all the right places.
