    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 07/09/2018

    » Having worked as the assistant of hospitality for trailblazer Barry Sternlicht when the Starwood empire was just getting launched, Amar Lalvani was right at the birth of the whole "cool lifestyle hotel" movement as it came into fruition 20 years ago. "I was there since the beginning and I loved it," the California-born hotelier recalls. "I didn't seek it, but when I saw it, it encapsulated everything I liked to do so I just stuck with it."

    Love, always

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 11/08/2018

    » Flowers are always a nice gesture, but ones that can last forever are sure to give you a better run for your money. Why not gift mum with some jewellery pieces that come with the floral sentiment? Flowery assortments from Swarovski come in contemporary designs which feature a timeless black and white colour combo. They've also got a pearl option where they can be removed from the earring to channel the asymmetrical earring trend. If you want real diamonds, Tilda's Mother's Day collection features florals which also hold symbolic meaning through eight flower petals. Eight represents infinity, or infinite love in Western culture, while signifying wealth, or infinite fortune in Chinese culture. Otherwise, seal your love with hearts from Pandora which also comes in rose or golden hues this season. Their iconic logo and heart-shaped charms come in sweet colours that will blend right in with your staple silver set, while there are also letter charms to spell out your appreciation for mum.

    Houses worthy of a fortune

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/08/2018

    » It happens only once a decade or so. This is a reference to Sansiri's flagship super-luxury projects, where the creation of the most exclusive condominiums and opulent houses are up for grabs. This year, it's Baan Sansiri Pattanakarn, where resplendent white houses (all lakorn-cameo worthy) have been erected on Pattanakarn 30. Inspired by the Regency era, much of the design aesthetics on these 37 rai of land will be derived from what is considered the golden age of arts and culture in 19th-century England.

    Polished jewels

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/08/2018

    » There's beauty in things that do what they are meant to do well. In the case of crystals, let's get straight to its main function: to sparkle, dazzle and bring a touch of brilliance to its wearer. Never mind that it's not a precious stone, because the splendour of crystal jewellery pieces these days is no less impressive than that of their fine jewellery counterparts. If anything, Swarovski's annual regional gala at Kuala Lumpur last month was a star-studded indication that crystals can be just as glamorous and bedazzling, despite their roots of mimicry.

    Cash in on fashion

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/07/2018

    » 1We've been confused with DKNY ever since its eponymous designer, Donna Karan, stepped down from her brand three years ago. When Public School's duo of Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne were hired as the new creative directors in 2016, the brand moved toward a more edgy and fashion-forward feel. Their departure from DKNY means the collections now are less androgynous and also have less unconventional silhouettes. It's a safe bet that you'll find classics and basics for all occasions, now that all lines of the brand have come under one roof at EmQuartier for ease in mix-and-matching. Most importantly however, is how the price range of the clothes has been adjusted and it's now more approachable than ever. The top glamorous line, Donna Karan, will set you back 7,900 baht for an elegant dress, with many items ranging in the low five digits at most. For New York cool and modernity, DKNY delivers up unadorned solid staples that can take you from day to night, with items like shirts priced at 4,900 baht. Keep the DKNY Sport name on top of your list if you're in need of stylish, yet snug workout clothes. You'll be looking to spend in the 2,000-baht range for their sports bras and other pieces of activewear, discretely decorated with the DKNY logo. You'll only understand after you've touched it -- if you're looking for amazingly soft fabrics, their sweatpants and tees are some of the most comfortable we've seen in this market. Visit the flagship store at EmQuartier.

    Ice, no ice.. maybe

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 21/07/2018

    » Sebastian Copeland's upcoming plans include making another trip to the North Pole. It's nothing new for the photographer-cum-explorer, but there is an unsettling condition about this journey he is about to make. Not because he is now 54, nor due to the hazardous method he has chosen: walking. The most disturbing factor is that this is probably the last time he can do something like this.
