There seems to be one thing on the minds of Thai designers this autumn: romance. Looking through all the new Fall/Winter 2019 collections at Siam Center, we’ve realised just how prominent love is going to be as a theme this season. It almost makes it seem like Bangkok is set to be the next “City of Love”, where couples walk everywhere hand-in-hand and candlelit tables for two are constantly occupied.
A blossoming romance is always an exciting time, particularly in a city where there are so many things you can see and do together. Whether you’ve booked a fancy dinner or plan on strolling around in an art gallery for an afternoon, a date is always so much better when you’re confident you’ve got the perfect outfit on. So here, we’ve created a guide with a few date-worthy looks from Siam Center’s hottest and most romantic Thai designers right now. The new Fall/Winter 2019 collections that have just landed in stores are giving us plenty of inspiration for romantic things to do in the city, along with outfits to wear for them. Whatever type of date you’re going on, make sure you’ve got the perfect look for the occasion. Let these Thai designers be your matchmakers this season.

Classic tailoring meets unconventional graphics and mix-and-matching of materials in QDAP’s new collection. We love the blend of urban Bangkok vibes with a subtle formality in the cuts; you get to be the cool guy as well as the old-fashioned gentleman.
The date: Browsing a weekend vintage market.
The ‘Perfect Imperfection’ collection perfectly encapsulates what it really means to love one another. Appreciating someone’s flaws, taking them as they are, and being able to open yourself up to them in return is one of the best signs of a great romance. Wear their quirky, eclectic looks to celebrate yours.
The date: A loud, unashamed karaoke night.
