    From the Big Apple to the Big Mango

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/05/2018

    » 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 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.

    So into you, Ariana

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/08/2017

    » It's true how beautiful people can do no wrong. They can be doing nothing in front of a screen for 10 minutes and people will still be entranced. That was exactly how Ariana Grande's first concert in Bangkok last Thursday kicked off. With a countdown video of her checking herself out looking pretty, swinging around her hair, interacting with her crew and teasing the audience with "I-can't-hear-you" by leaning her ear in towards the camera.

    Three's a charm

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 08/09/2016

    » One of the most anticipated fashion gatherings of the year is about to be smaller than ever. This year, Fashion Fieldtrip, which features shows by Bangkok's cultishly followed brands, including Asava, Issue and Vickteerut, will be welcoming only 150 spectators. This is a stark difference to the guest list that reached four digits in the past. Whether Fashion Fieldtrip is returning to its roots or is just finding an excuse to downsize in the face of an economic downturn has yet to be seen with how well the shows turn out on Sept 17 at Bangkok City City Gallery. Still, with this relatively new space at Sathon playing host to a handful of highly buzzed and hot exhibitions and events in the past few months, it is in good taste that the three founders of the club decided to hold their fashion/art exhibition inside this popular white box.

    Descendants of dance

    » Kenny Ortega has another hit on his hands. If there's a movie featuring dancing, then we tend to think of this acclaimed American director, producer and choreographer. Ortega is behind various cult musical phenomena that different generations of teens have grown up with, from the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, Michael Jackson's This Is It concerts, to the globally-embraced High School Musical trilogy.

    Tied to a Sino past

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 04/05/2015

    » The unavoidable and never-failing icebreaker -- do you have any Chinese blood? -- will always have its place in Thai society. Yet it's also something of an empty question, believes Singaporean author Jeffery Sng: "By the time Phibunsongkhram changed the country's name to Thailand, the Thais were already so mixed that it was hard to find anyone 100% Thai."

    A Parisian sense of style

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 25/02/2016

    » This is definitely a big hooray for the financially-challenged. Clothing giant Uniqlo's bread and butter of Lifewear, is redefined through a designer lens, with a couple of collections offering distinct characteristics that suit different lifestyles this season. These pieces continue to be functional, but look a lot more fashion-conscious by enlisting big and influential names from the stylish circle to work their sartorial magic.

    Pinch of literary spice

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 01/06/2015

    » For the first time in India, local language authors such as Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi have become marquee names in terms of sales, eclipsing even mainstream Western writers on the market. Books using local, vernacular language are edgy and have a huge following among young readers.
