With a myriad of luxury labels in Bangkok, sometimes it’s difficult to keep track of the new releases all the time.

That’s why we’ve created this Weekly Obsessions roundup to give you an exclusive list of highly covetable items we are lusting after — because if it’s on our radar, it should definitely be on yours, too. Browse through our specially selected, top-rated picks to uncover what our editors are obsessing over this week.
I’m a food writer by day and a bread baker by night. Yet anyone who bakes knows how time-consuming it is to hand-roll and knead bread dough. That’s why when Dolce & Gabbana collaborated with Smeg to release a new kitchen appliances collection called ‘Sicily is my Love’, I knew I was in for a treat. This stand mixer (approx. THB 33,900) reflects the Sicilian folklore and culture the brand is known for. But what it does for me is more than just an eye candy. With the help of the fast-speed gadget, kneading dough takes mere minutes, and my morning is always guaranteed to have a freshly baked coriander-sage loaf ready for my garlicky chive butter. — Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer
It’s that time of the year again — when fall comes around and calls for a more playful take on kaleidoscopic makeup. This season, Nars lives up to my expectation, launching the latest eyeshadow collection ‘Single Eye Shadow’ (THB 850) with a jaw-dropping range of 60 shades, from sweet shimmers to dramatic glitters. I especially love this ‘Firenze’ colour, which is a rosy pink shade with golden hints. Refined with Pigment Powder Suspension Technology, the lovely hue boasts hyper-reflective sparkles that will sure turn heads for all the right reasons. — Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer
77th has always been one of my favourite Bangkok-based brands, with a series of exceptional jewellery designs that can’t be found elsewhere. Lately, its new collection not only features stunning rings or necklaces, but also chic clutch bags. I swooned over this Super Heart Clutch Belt Bag (THB 6,900) since the first time I saw it. Sophisticated yet fun, it’s a unique fusion of an evening clutch and a belt bag. The bag is made from plush velvet fabric, imbuing it with great lustre and elan. With a polished blue colour and clear-cut crystal buckle, the bag will elevate your casual outfits with a luxurious touch. — CO
I love me some ‘90s fashion, and whilst Kylie Jenner may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the iconic time period, did you know that the beauty mogul actually has something in common with the super trendy Adidas Falcon shoes? Both born in 1997, Adidas is launching a new Falcons model (THB 3800) with KJ as the face of the campaign, featuring a very-hot-right-now maximalist design. I love the light pink colour above the chunky rubber midsole, as well as the reflective detailing, making for a shoe that is feminine without being too literal. Comfy, cool, and very #ThrowbackThursday, I think I’ve found my perfect off-duty shoe. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
Blue is definitely the warmest colour in this stunning Van Cleef & Arpels necklace (approx. THB 4,526,400). Part of the new Bouton d’or Collection, the curved lines and colour of its paillette motif caught my eye the second I saw it. Made with yellow gold, lapis lazuli, turquoise, and round diamonds, here’s a piece that can bring a fun and lady-like pop to every summer outfit. And to be entirely honest, I also think it’d make for a very snazzy addition to any office look, too. The star of all my meetings this upcoming week for sure. Beautiful. — LG
