Weekly Obsessions: Burberry

Burberry Monogram and Icon Stripe Print Silk Square Scarf

I developed a love for silk square scarves towards the end of last year. Something about them is so versatile and dressy, and they’re an accessory you can have a lot of fun with. Wrapped around your neck or tied up as a top, they’ve been my go-to for many occasions throughout 2019, from the beach club with denim cut-offs to the morning meeting with a sleek blazer. For this week, I’ve got my eye on a classic: the Thomas Burberry Monogram and Icon Stripe Print Scarf (THB 15,913). The fresh red colour is one my eye is taking a serious liking to, and I love the simple yet somewhat playfulness of the newly unveiled logo. Easy to pair with countless ensembles, and a timeless addition to any look. I’m already excited to take this one from day to night and back again. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer

Weekly Obsessions: Disaya

Disaya Mexican Floral Guipure Denim Jacket

Disaya is always a good idea for a bright and floaty summer wardrobe. I love the combination of cowboy tailoring, feminine florals, and South American colours on this Guipure Jacket (THB 12,900). My personal style is a blend of boyish silhouettes and feminine detail, so I thought this jacket would fit in quite well. It’s the kind of piece that is bold and bright while still allowing space for accessorising — either with statement earrings or a headscarf. I also get a kind of nostalgic feel from it because as a child my wardrobe was full of floral denims, and who doesn’t want to relive their childhood?! — Karn Chatikavanij, Style Writer

Weekly Obsessions: Sretsis

Sretsis Valentin Pearl Earrings

I’m a magpie when it comes to collecting gigantic gold-plated earrings. Usually, I would go for the plain yet versatile hoop earrings that go well with basically any outfit I put on. However, these Valentin Pearl Earrings (THB 11,000) by Sretsis – with a stunning rainbow crystal-studded, gold-plated baroque gold, has me dying for its cheesy slash corny heart shape. With the attached water pearl drop, these earpieces add dramatic effect to any outfit I wear. – Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer

Weekly Obsessions: Philip B

Philip B Peppermint and Avocado Clarifying and Volumising Shampoo

Celebrating their 5th anniversary just a few days ago, Philip B has been established in Thailand as the favourite natural haircare line. I actually had the pleasure of meeting Philip himself, and can safely say I’ve never met anybody more dedicated and passionate about helping women get the hair they want. All his products use natural luxury ingredients and exotic flower essences like Oud, silk, and even white truffle. They all smell like heaven too. But even the basics are incredible: his Peppermint and Avocado shampoo (THB 2350 for 220ml) is an absolute lifesaver if you’re living in Bangkok. The peppermint gives your scalp an invigorating cool tingling sensation that really refreshes you, while the avocado restored my hair’s hydration for that healthy shine. My whole head was literally squeaky clean, and once it dried my hair was definitely bouncier and more nourished. Frankly, I’d trust Philip B with my whole head. — KC

Weekly Obsessions: Fiorucci

Fiorucci x Hypebeast Swimsuit Animal

There is something about this Fiorucci x Hypebeast Swimsuit (THB 5580) that I can’t stop thinking about. I spotted it on browsing the new arrivals on HBX (as you do), and immediately turned to our Food Editor and said, “wow, look at this!” She hated it. And I totally get it. It’s one of those pieces that you either adore from the get-go or never want to see again. Polarising fashion. I love the pop colours and the contrast with the two iconic Fiorucci angels. I love that it’s a clean-cut simple one-piece silhouette. And I love that I can already see myself lounging on a sun bed in this number on my next weekend getaway. Worn on its own for cocktails in a jacuzzi, or paired with shorts for a vibrant night out, it’s a classic with a funky revamp. I’m obsessed. — LG

See by Chloé Joan Camera Bag

Isn’t it hard to find bags that are just right for Polaroid cameras? I need a bag that fits my camera right in so it’s completely protected but, of course, it should be pretty and vivacious too. See By Chloé’s Joan Camera Bag (approx. THB 13,103) just caught my eye and I think it would perfectly blend with my pink polaroid camera. This rusty pink leather bag with a suede trim has an adorable charm to it that flaunts a youthful vibe. Perfectly designed in a square shape with a gold-tone chain shoulder strap, this bag certainly isn’t one of those gloomy dull camera bags – it’s lively and very on-the-go. I can easily store my Instax Mini Films in the front flap pocket. It’s also adorned with the brand’s signature braided O-ring in shining golden hardware which makes it a valuable purchase (even if it’s more expensive than my polaroid camera). – Alisha Pawa, Branded Content Writer
