    Everything's coming up Rosewood

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Rosewood is not a name that rings any personal bells, but I first unknowingly came across it while on a night out in Beijing. The so-far-lousy night took a turn when the social editor of a high-society magazine ushered me to get off my stool at the dingy bar we were in. We were first-timers in Beijing and unlike the Western press in the group, she was in no mood for pole dancers and Mandarin rock covers. She was the most well-informed and refined tippler of the Thai group, so we trustingly followed her taste to Rosewood Beijing, knowing whatever it was, it wasn't going to be the Chinese version of Patpong. It was the right decision, the one we should have gone with three hours earlier. What greeted us upon arrival were stunning high ceilings, stylish understatement and immense relief that there are chic and modern places to head to in the post-Mao capital.

    From the Big Apple to the Big Mango

    » It's all been there done that on the Cannes Lion advertising award circuit for Kantapon Metheekul. The young creative executive has won many awards, been featured in several publications and has illustrated for a handful of high street and luxury fashion brands -- but that's not his true calling. As someone who loved to draw since he was five, it was only natural that Kantapon's veins throbbed to become a full-time artist -- to draw his own creations and not what others briefed him to. After three years of working for advertising agencies, he packed his bags and headed to New York to become an artist.

    The art of used plastic, courtesy of Vivienne Westwood

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 13/03/2018

    » Britain's dame of punk, Vivienne Westwood, is known for taking modern punk mainstream, but she is also outspoken on environmental issues. It is no surprise that her latest collection to drop in stores for spring summer 2018, Anglomania, draws most of its motifs from the concept of saving the world through sustainability and using less plastic.

    » If there is one thing Hungary is becoming known for, it is how this neoclassical, landlocked country is unexpectedly becoming the capital of projection mapping artists. Four prominent groups which hail from Budapest are considered among the top 10 projection artists in the world, and Limelight, which has created the "Beautiful Bangkok" 3D mapping currently showing on the Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard, is also one of those pioneers.

    The go-to fashion brand for petite ladies

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/12/2017

    » Sweet and petite, Rassarine "Kathy" Tanachaiwattanapokin makes the kind of clothes that are perfect for small, dainty women. Although her feminine brand, Made of Fabric, has been around since 2011, it was only this season that the founder/designer presented her autumn/winter collection, "Dreamless Romance", with a big, rosy splash at CentralWorld. With a childhood spent around fabrics and a master's degree in fashion from Istituto Maragoni, Rassarine has turned her passion into a popular label -- so much so that Chinese tourists make her store a stop on their travel itineraries. Using herself as the prototypical model, you'll be sure to always find itsy-bitsy pieces here (Kathy loves short hemlines because they make legs look longer). We talked to the designer about her brand's history and why the girlie girls love it.

    Soi Sesame

    » Ryan Dillon knows tables around the world intimately. "There's usually a lot of gum," he says from under a table at the Siam Kempinski's business centre. The American muppeteer was sitting on the floor under the table with his arms raised -- a position where he spends most of his time as the performer of Sesame Street's red furball Elmo. Recently in town last month, Dillon and Elmo were out and about in Bangkok to promote the new season of Sesame Street, which airs on MCOT Kids every weekend on 8am.
