me ISSEY MIYAKE Stretch Pleats Turtle Neck Shirt

Have you ever experienced the dilemma of having wrinkly clothes on vacation? You carefully packed your clothes and spent time folding them, knowing full well they would come out creased? It’s a real pain in the neck to keep your clothes from wrinkling. That’s why I was very excited when I got my hands on this Stretch Pleats Turtle Neck Shirt (THB 5,900) from me ISSEY MIYAKE. Designed to be flexible, the fabric is weaved with the brand’s innovative techniques so that it can be stretched out at every angle. I can easily roll it into my bag without knowing there will be no creases when it comes out of my bag. The colourful patterns earn extra points, too. – Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer

Piaget Possession Open Bangle Bracelet

Piaget released their Holiday Season 2018 collection here this week, and even though the festive season may be a little while away, here’s an item that is already sneaking its way onto my wishlist. This Piaget Possession Open Bangle Bracelet (THB 421,000) in 18K rose gold is set with 90 brilliant-cut diamonds and 2 malachite cabochons. I love the royal green hue of the gemstones, especially when I wear them stacked with other bangles. Elegant, yet still preciously playful. Secret Santa? I’m dropping hints here. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer

DKNY Elissa Pebbled Leather North South Crossbody

Following its successful launch of a sportswear line, DKNY has leaned more towards younger generations, recently releasing plenty of new street-style items. This Elissa Pebbled Leather North South Crossbody (7,900) was no exception, featuring cool graffiti designs that caught my eye almost at once. Crafted from high-quality leather, this shoulder bag is as practical as it is stylish with a compact size that can still hold my personal belongings with ease, including my phone, wallet and a few beauty essentials. It’s also perfect for an evening night out, bringing a fun pop to any outfit. – CO

MacKenzie-ChildsTaylor Fluted Keukenhof Dinner Plate

Honestly, I can wax poetic about this Taylor Fluted Keukenhof Dinner Plate by MacKenzie-Childs(THB 3,084) all day long. But let me shorten my tableware-love speech for you and just say that these handmade and hand-painted majolica plates are a staple for my dining table. Why? I mean, look at them. Whatever you pile on top of this elegant slash vibrant plate will come out looking gorgeous no matter what it is. Believe me, this plate is my ultimate tip to assuring my roasted veggies for a weeknight meal won’t come out looking dry or like I’m serving withered greens on a plate. – Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer

NARS Orgasm Infatuation Palette

Never once did Nars fail to impress me with its makeup releases. And just recently, the brand has introduced its holiday-edition palette ‘Orgasm Infatuation‘ (THB 2,000), which contains all the signature products that I adore. With popular Laguna bronzing powder, Orgasm blush and highlighting powder, the cheek palette has got a spectrum of universally flattering shades that complements just about everyone. Graced with spiky embellishments and a metallic-pink colour, the packaging is no less spectacular, offering festive vibes for a finishing touch. – CO
