Helping injured turtles swim again

Renowned Japanese watch brand Citizen is launching a limited edition of its second generation Fugu (NY 009) series, aka the Citizen Promaster, to raise funds for a pilot project that takes care of injured stranded turtles.

These creatures often lose a leg when they become entangled in nets and the donation will be used to produce prosthetic devices that allow them to swim again and return to life in the sea. The project is under the supervision of the Marine Resources and Coastal Research and Development Centre on Thailand’s east coast.

Vipavan Mahamrongdamkun, managing director of C-Thong Panich, official importer and distributor of Citizen Watches in Thailand said: “C-Thong Panich has cooperated with the Marine and Coastal Resources Research and Development Centre for the Eastern Gulf in putting together this project for the care and treatment of injured and stranded turtles and making artificial legs for the marine creatures. Part of the proceeds from sales of the 999 pieces available in Thailand will go to the project. The watch is priced Bt15,900.”

The diving watch comes in vintage style, reminiscent of the first year of the first model launches, the NY004 Series in 1993 and the 30th anniversary celebration of the Promaster series. Distinctive with a green dial and frame, it features a unique frame inspired by the Japanese puffer fish or fugu and has a serial number between 1 and 1,989 engraved on the back cover. The 42 mm body is waterproof to 200 metre, has a Citizen Caliber 8203 mechanism that can be wound by hand a power reserve of up to approximately 40 hours.

“We have given it the nickname ‘fugu’ after a rare turtle called Fugu who was caught in a net and lost his leg. We also hope that the story will make the government, the private sector and the general public aware of the dangers of marine waste that has devastating effects on marine resources. We have plans to make artificial legs for Fugu and release him back into the sea next month. Our brand ambassador Prin ‘Mark’ Suparat will be on hand and we invite his fan clubs to join this project,” she added.

Dr Pin Sak Suraswati, Deputy Director-General of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources revealed, “Recently, our rare marine animal team received a report that sea turtles are being caught in fishing nets. The one we found, a male aged 2-3 years, has a perfect body and can respond well. Deep wounds to the legs were causing abnormal swimming and he also had wound in the corners of the mouth on both sides. He is now being treated by a veterinarian at a rare marine animal hospital Makhampom Bay, Rayong Province. We are delighted to be receiving the support of C-Thong Panich.

Misis lights up afternoon tea with dazzling gems

Italian jewellery brand Misis has paired its undersea-inspired treasures with a delightful afternoon tea at the St Regis Bangkok. Lushly multi-coloured, evocative, sometimes ironic and sometimes romantic, the new collection from Vicenza marks a bold turn for the firm established in 1986 by Alberto Piaserico.

Italian Ambassador Lorenzo Galanti presided at the recent invitation-only debut of the afternoon tea, which also featured a fashion show by talented designer Karatphet Issara, the creative director at Kemissara.

Thitiporn Sathavornmanee, marketing director at local distributor of Sette Peccati, praised Misis for its “unique design format in all five collections, combining various materials with meticulous craftsmanship”.

“Reef Party” cheerfully captures the beauty of a coral reef and its mystical charm, right down to bright starfish and golden seashells. The necklace, earrings and ring are a mingling of red, white, blue and pink.

The marvellously feminine “Ama” is named for the famous Japanese pearl divers who have inspired painters and writers for centuries. Blue chalcedony meets white and orange enamel shells, white cubic zirconia and pearls in chandelier seashell earrings and gold-plated pieces shaped like seahorses and starfish.

The menu for “Gems of the Sea Afternoon Tea” delightfully complemented the jewels with Edible Oyster Shells, Avocado Creme, Salmon Pearls with avocado cream, roe and blue curacao bubbles, and even a blue chocolate mousse whipped into waves.

The “Positano” line visits a Tuscan beach famous since ancient Roman times with the cobalt blue of the sky and sea contrasted against white sands and houses. Gold-plated silver crabs and enamel freshwater pearls catch the eye among the blue-enamel coral and resin in a pearl bangle, crab stud earrings and more.

“Poseidon” boasts a crowned octopus and golden puffer fish hanging from a bracelet and long necklace embellished with blue agate.

“Isla de mujeres” is a voyage to the abysses of the deep, where beautiful starfish dart among sunken galleons. A starfish-shaped bangle and ring have gold to mimic the sand and orange portraying the evening sunlight. A necklace is embellished with green starfish-crafted pieces and gemstones.

Misis is available at Sette Peccati’s boutiques at Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery and Siam Takashimaya.

“Gems of the Sea Afternoon Tea” is being served daily from 2-5pm until September 30 in the St Regis Bar and the Drawing Room on the 12th floor.

Handpicked by Coach for their playful, optimistic attitude, the famous American fashion house recently introduced its latest collaboration with an artist and this time congratulations are due to an artist from Thailand, Alex Face.

The Art of Signature collection celebrates its iconic Signature pattern comprising bright, colour-blocked and limited-edition bags featuring original artwork created by up-and-coming artists from around the world. Founded in 1941, Coach has a longstanding reputation built on quality craftsmanship and is defined by its confident New York style.

World renowned artists who have contributed to the Art of Signature collection include Marleigh Culver, Gianni Lee and Anna Sudit of New York, Kendra Dandy of Philadelphia, Tyler Spangler of California, Robert Hunter of London, We Are Out of Office of Amsterdam – and now Alex Face of Thailand.

Known for using bare walls as his canvas, Alex Face developed his style while wandering the streets and alleys of Bangkok. His trademark character, a world-weary baby in animal costumes, has been spotted in Taiwan, London and Berlin. The first Thai artist to collaborate with Coach, he designed an exclusive motif for the Art of Signature collection featured on the Camera bag and Academy backpack.

The Art of Signature collection is available starting today (August 26) at the Coach Central World, and the Coach Icon Siam store. In addition to these, for personalisation, Coach has also unveiled its “Coach Create” service exclusively at Coach CentralWorld, inviting customers to experience a design-it-yourself service that takes customisation to the next level.

From bags, small leather goods to footwear, this unique customisation experience allows Coach’s customers to re-design their favourite Coach’s leather goods to a one-of-a-kind statement bag. The “Personalise It” theme put an emphasis on the buyer monogramming their initials along with icons which best represent their individuality. It features two key signature embellishments – Tea Rose (feminine leather blooms) and Souvenir Pins (rebellious cool motifs). Each pin is hand crafted with glove-tanned leather, individually die-cut, embossed and edge-painted by hand. Every single tea rose exemplifies the fine craftsmanship of Coach.

Two fashion houses join up to capture the beauty of Thai textiles

Leading Italian fashion house, Antonio Marras, and SORAPOL, a London-based Thai brand created by Sorapol Chawaphatnakul, have joined together to interpret the beauty of Thai textiles in the “L’Elegante Thai” exhibition, which runs until September 1 at Iconsiam. The event also features pop-up stores of both brands.

The event was opened on August 20 by Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit, Italian Ambassador Lorenzo Galanti and Iconsiam executives Chadatip Chutrakul and Supoj Chawatsirikul.

The opening ceremony was followed by a fashion show, displaying the two designers’ take on traditional Thai designs and styles, with celebrities bidding for the pieces. Proceeds from the exhibition and sales will be donated to the “Made by Beautiful People” charity project, which creates opportunities for underprivileged artists and autistic children to showcase and sell their designs at Iconcraft.

Marras and SORAPOL have come up with a mesmerising collection under the concept “World Fashion Craftsmanship: Enriching the Pride of Siam”.

The Italian brand’s offerings made the most of exquisite Thai fabrics by applying Italian artistry to create uniquely beautiful pieces. The highlight of the Marras collection was a glamourous evening gown with three different shades – grey, burgundy and dark brown – merged together to create an exceptional piece that any woman will be proud to own.

SORAPOL, meanwhile, took inspiration from the diamond pattern, which has been used in Thai textiles for hundreds of years, by creating and fusing different elements of the pattern with modern techniques. The highlight piece was made using handwoven diamond-patterned Thai fabric cut with a laser and matching it with Italian textile – as if to display a unison of two cultures.

The exhibition is part of the Thai-Italian Craftmanship Collaboration, which was inspired by the love for refined Thai textiles and craftsmanship, which should be preserved and shared internationally.

Full of imagination, the Italian fashion house Marni has introduced its latest, the Marni Market Bangkok 3rd edition, with more playful and vivid products to make people’s shopping simply fun and cool at its pop-up store in Siam Discovery until the end of this month.

The space brings about the colourful universe of Marni Market, as it displaying its famous geometric pattern, with hand-woven squared basket bags in PVC, tote bags with checkered motifs, hammock bags, and crocheted bags in cotton and wool – all as usual in a multitude of colours and sizes, and with the Marni logo in leather on the front.

Entirely designed in Italy and handcrafted in Colombia by a community of artisans that have collaborated with the brand for many years, the products range portrays Marni’s spirit through an original synthesis of design, colour and form. Marni Market has also introduced a series of astronaut-shaped sculptures and colourful bandanas featuring pixelated drawings.

Here original furnishing accessories cohabit with design objects in a space that invites visitors to forget about the rules. Its limited-edition products are effortlessly adapted to different settings that draw inspiration from the brand’s colourful flair.

The interiors feature house sculpture: a series of flower side-tables, stools, rocking chairs, baskets and magazine racks, animal-sculptures and masks in metal frames and colourful PVC. Most products are artisanal, and so may show minor imperfections.

Thai fashion brand Jaspal sets out to bring smiles to fashionistas’ faces through its collaboration with British designer Orla Kiely, and recently launched the new “Jaspal x Orla Kiely” collection at its Siam Paragon store with Kiely flying in from the UK to attend.

Based on the concept “Happy prints that make you smile,” the collection features the glamorous prints and patterns that make her work so popular. Indeed, her prints have become iconic and recognizable on a global scale and she recently reinforced that reputation with a successful exhibition at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum.

The collection combines elements of 1960s fashion and Jaspal’s DNA. The Lola print is the highlight, depicting a cartoon character of a vibrant girl wearing glasses designed with the Thai fashionista in mind.

The combination of designs have incorporated the unique strengths of the two brands seamlessly: 1960s vintage mixed with chic modernity. It also addresses the need for femininity and a perfect summer wardrobe.

The line includes clothes for women, accessories, handbags, shoes, and hats as well as umbrellas, glasses, pillows, notebooks and bean bags.

To draw the young generation, the store is showcasing a range of AR-related activities depicting beautiful flower print patterns and also offering thirsty teens shopping this month the chance to relax at its Pop-Up cafe.

“Jaspal has been a fashion manufacturer and distributor in Thailand for more than 47 years. Our commitment is to build brand value and become prominent in the Thai fashion industry,” said Viseth Singhsachathet. “We are proud to be the first Thai brand to collaborate with Orla and firmly believe that this collection will take Thailand’s fashion industry to the international level.”

London designed Hmong fashion to mark the Queen Mother’s birthday

Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother of Thailand, has long believed that if you are to truly help people mired in poverty, you must enable them to develop practical skills to improve their lives in a sustainable way.

This belief led Her Majesty to initiate the SUPPORT Foundation in 1976 and this royal project under Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s patronage seeks to preserve and perpetuate indigenous arts and crafts. Now, thanks to the beautiful and imaginative crafts of these trained artisans, British firm Eponine London is enjoying both fame and fortune.

“It is with great pride that we are launching the ‘Artisan’ dress. This dress has been inspired by the artisans we met in Chiang Mai province, by the textiles displayed in the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles, and by the crafts we admired at the Bangkok Style Fair 2019, an invitation to which was generously extended to Eponine London by the Thai Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP). With a keen eye for textiles, Her Majesty the Queen Mother noticed their great beauty and bought them for her private collection. The Artisan dress is made entirely from small pieces of exquisitely hand-embroidered fabrics sourced from rural communities in the north of Thailand. Hence every dress is absolutely unique,” said Jet Shenkman, creative director of the British bespoke brand, which she founded in 2010.

The London-based brand has become famous for its signature style, which blends elegant silhouettes of the ’50’s and ’60’s with an eye-catching combination of colours. The latest collection of Eponine London features carefully crafted Hmong cotton fabric sourced from Thailand, and thanks to the colour combinations, quality workmanship and textures, each dress is unique.

As a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother on the occasion of her 87th Birthday Anniversary, the Artisan dress will be launched on August 12 via the website full proceeds of the first dress ordered, and 10 per cent of all subsequent orders, will be donated to the SUPPORT Foundation.
