As you know our collections are designed with an unstoppable spirit. Part of our secret recipe to this is to take inspiration from our travels around the globe.
Every season we take design inspiration from different cultures, often mixing one from the west and one from the east to create what we like to call a fusion style. For SS18 the eastern country that inspired the collection was Thailand. A country that is overwhelming in beautiful bold colours and intoxicating flavours. From their traditional costumes to the bedazzled rickshaws and the glistening temples it is hard not to see why this country might be the perfect resource for design inspiration.
Here are some of our favourite inspirations:
Say Wat? The architectural details in the Thai Wat Temples are more than insta worthy. Every town and city has them and they all stand out with their ornate glamour. One of our particular favourites is Wat Arun in Bangkok. Photographed here by IG @girlfromplanetearth
Thai street markets are a fantastic way to soak up the local spirit and try the tasty delicacies. For an added streak of danger see the Maeklong Railway Market. As pictures by IG @thailand.vacations . The coolest thing about this market is that it adjusts itself and perfectly encapsulates the train as it rolls through. The awnings are pulled back only as far as necessary and the baskets of fruits and vegetables are shifted just enough as to not be sliced by the metal wheels!
Thai traditional costumes with their yards and yards of fabrics beautifully folded into skirts and their yellow gold jewellery is another stunning sight. The style of Fawn dancing with incredibly long fingernails is particularly unmissable. Best seen in its origin city Chang Mai. Pictured here by IG @conexaothai
Last but not least, everywhere you go in Thailand you are surrounded by beautiful flowers. Whether its floating flower heads in giant urns or hanging white jasmine, the scents and colours are intoxicating. The colour combination inspiration is endless. Photo here from IG @tierra.y.cielo
