Swarovski recently previewed its latest and brilliantly whimsical collection at CentralWorld, taking an inspirational dive into the glorious Mediterranean coastlines and capturing the picturesque Riviera styles of charming locations from Portofino, Capri and Naxos down to the iconic Greek island of Mykonos.

The sparkling fantasies were brought to life with vibrant shades of glimmering Swarovski crystals in decadently irresistible designs from zesty gelato accents to colourful cocktails.

The “VIP Preview of Swarovski Summer 2019 Collection” event saw the venue transformed into a summery delight complete with shimmering Swarovski summer tricycle for everyone to hop-on, sweet treats and a photo booth.

Actress Nittha  “Mew” Jirayungyurn, the only Thai celebrity in “Swarovski’s Brilliant 8” of Southeast Asia led a lineup of Thailand’s brightest stars dazzling in the finest Swarovski Summer 2019 styles.

The Summer 2019 Collection presents four standout lines namely “No Regrets”, “Ocean”, “Oz” and “Only” featuring playful designs that evoke summer memories and spotlight wearable and surprisingly versatile jewellery adorned with exquisite Swarovski crystal pave and Pointiage.

 

The highlight of this collection is the No Regrets line that encapsulates the fun and indulgent spirit of an endless tropical vacation with youthful and vibrant motifs that sets the perfect scene for a mesmerising summer of cool romance.

The seamless combination of refined silhouettes and cheerfully contemporary colour palette of strawberry red and mint green down to golden yellow and intense shades of blue embodies the sweet indulgence and rebellious spirit of the collection.

No Regrets offers a fresh take on summertime treats that will sweeten up any look. Figurative designs featuring ice cream cones, sorbets, banana splits and cocktails take on a more luxurious, infinitely more refined and glamorous vibe thanks to sleek silhouettes and colourful Swarovski crystals.

 

Ocean brings to life one of the summer’s most surprising accessory trends – marine life characters. Swarovski shines a new light on lobster, crab and seahorse motifs, while little seashell charms bring luck to travellers and jangle from shimmering bangles and necklaces that call out to be layered.

This season’s sailing rope-inspired Ocean View line gives summer wardrobes a fashionably nautical spin. It features maximum drama from the neckup with the long earring silhouettes anchoring Swarovski crystal beading in pastel pinks and blues.

The ideal companion for summer’s warm days and seasonal soirees, Oz is a new line of light and fluid designs in a chic colour combination of emerald green Swarovski crystals and gold tones. Versatility is the name of the game as one pair of chain earrings can be worn in six different and unexpected ways. And as statement hoops are by far the earrings of the season, Swarovski takes it to the next level with the oversized yet delicate star hoop earrings from the Only line.

They and others set out to raise awareness and encourage people to provide opportunities to underprivileged children, beginning with an auction of pattern designs and illustrations by Belgian artist Sarah Corynen.

Among the winners was Chaiwat Nantiruj, CEO of Eka Pak, who took home “Firework Bird”.

 

“I love art auctions,” he said. “Every piece has its own value. I bid for ‘Firework Bird’ because my daughter loves animals. The auction to help children is such a great idea. I also want to give more opportunities to other children around the world to live better lives and grow up more happily.”

 

Several celebrity guests brought their children along and had a giggle watching them frost cookies and create postcards.

And the setting was a beautifully decorated, shady garden where guests could take their time admiring the artwork and choosing the pieces they liked best.

Talks on “Breeding Siamese Fighting Fish”, “Commercial Value of Siamese Fighting Fish” and “Siamese Fighting Fish: National Treasure that Takes Part in Thai Way of Life” will also be held along with an aquarium aquascape and fish photo workshops.

Siamese fighting fish have existed in Thai history, literature and records for hundreds of years. The fish is mentioned in records dating back to the Ayutthaya Kingdom, which dates back to the 14th Century. Historically it was bred for sports but nowadays most people raise the fish as a hobby. Growing trade in Siamese fighting fish generates about Bt1 billion per year globally, with that figure projected to reach Bt3 billion in the next few years.

Another highlight is an ice sculpture of Siamese fighting fish carved by the Thai ice-carving team who won the first prize at the 46th International Snow Sculpture contest in Sapporo, Japan. It was the eighth top award for Thailand since the first victory in 2000. It is the 22nd year of Thai participation since 1991 in one of Japan’s most popular winter events, visited by over two million tourists.

The event also presents fighting fish-inspired products namely iPhone 6S that introduces fighting fish to the world on the screen, Srichand x Asava cosmetics inspired by colourful fighting fish, Betta Paradiso photo book by Visarute Angkatavanich, bamboo fighting fish by Korakot Aromdee, a costume of Miss International Queen 2019 contestant designed by Athit Thirakittwat, and papercrafts by Pitoon Paper Artist.

Escape the heat and head to an icy playground at Sea Life Bangkok as the aquarium introduces its latest adventure at its new penguin zone on the “Penguin Ice Playground Challenge” concept.

You’ll experience immersive and interactive experiences that will teach you all about these extraordinary birds. You can also enjoy the all-new “SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D” movie and the addition to the aquarium’s signature Instagram spots called “New Shark Mission”.

Noppadon Prapimpunt, head of Merlin Entertainments (Thailand) and a Sea Life Bangkok executive, said: “We are always searching for new things to encourage as many edutainment experiences for visitors as possible. And what better time for a string of new activities and campaigns than a school break and the Songkran holidays? This year, we are not only launching a new summer campaign, we are also unveiling three all-new highlights. These are the well-rounded expansion of our famous Gentoo penguin’s empire, a top quality 4D movie theatre, and the introduction of the new Instagram spot of the aquarium – where visitors can snap and share their own moments with us.”

The “Penguin Ice Playground Challenge” zone is the result of the expansion of the original Gentoo Penguin zone and is designed to encourage visitors to learn and experience the penguins’ ways of life. The arctic journey begins with “Danger on Ice” – a recreation of ice flooring using floor projecting technology to recreate what a penguin has to deal with on a daily basis, such as hunters like killer whales and seals. A Snow Globe creates the arctic ambience so that it will be the coldest summer for visitors, who can compete with friends (maximum of 4 people) in seeing who can catch the most fish in the interactive Forage For Food. Test your speed based on penguin’s rulebooks by joining “The Great Penguin Swim Race” to compete with friends (again a maximum of 4 people) and see who will be the fastest swimmer. Players will be judged and categorised based on speed limits of different kinds of penguin. Pumping the speed controller to imitate and gauge penguin’s swimming speed, players with the slowest pace will earn the Scuba Diver level; the normal speed level of 6 kph will earn players the speed level of the Little Fairy Penguin; hitching up the speed level to 15 kph earns players the speed of an African Penguin; while a speed of over 15 kph means players are the match of the one-and-only Gentoo – the world’s fastest penguin.

Located on the ground floor of Siam Paragon. “SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D” first screening time is 10.30am with show times every half hour. Movie tickets (aquarium entrance fee not included) cost Bt350.

The combo package of the Aquarium entrance fee, guidebook, and 4D movie costs Bt1,290 for adults (down from Bt1,690), and Bt1090 for kids three to 11 years old.
