Coccinelle Ambrine

Issey Miyake

I’m fond of this Coccinelle Ambrine (THB 17,500) as it checks off all of my requisite boxes; the design is so simple and versatile that it goes with everything I wear, and it can be worn both to the office and on casual weekends. The colour blue is also a sight for sore eyes, brightening up my whole look like no other shade. I have been carrying this handbag everywhere for months and still get compliments pretty much every time I wear it (also along with my fashionable outfits, of course!). Thanks to its durable Italian calf leather, it withstands scratches from my sky train rides, playground trips, and other difficulties of living in a big city, too. – Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer

 

Calvin Klein Heavy Wool Long Coat

Issey Miyake

As we await the holidays to arrive, it’s officially time to start shopping for the key players in our winter wardrobe. Especially for those who’re planning to jet off to a cold destination, you might want to consider investing in a long coat. I personally like this Heavy Wool Long Coat in Iron Red (THB 35,900) from Calvin Klein. Not only is it made from wool to keep you warm during the trip, but it also comes in a wintry colour palette to keep you looking on point this season. Timelessly elegant, its deep brown shade with a red hint is what makes this coat so classic yet stunning; it can effortlessly wrap up your winter style, and give you that modern-glamour-meets-urban-chic appeal. – CO

 

Zoe Large Jewellery Box by Wolf

Issey Miyake

All girls deserve a nice jewellery organiser. With that belief in mind, I set out on a day journey surfing on the internet for the right jewellery box for myself. The most interesting find I encountered was this Zoe Large Jewellery Box by Wolf (THB 20,426). Fresh and fab, the black indigo velvet and sophisticated, hand-crafted floral embroidery absolutely captivates my inner lady-like self. With over 21 compartments, I knew I needed to save up to get it so now it sits and looks at me invitingly on my wish list. – Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer

 

Issey Miyake Corsages

Issey Miyake

While we all know that fresh blooming flowers can always make a wonderful present to impress your loved ones, there’s nothing quite like the artificial forms of floriography that can last a lifetime but still get your loving message delivered just as beautifully. They are obviously one of the greatest things since sliced bread! Luckily, Issey Miyake has embraced this idea and put forward the emblem just in time for your gift shopping moment for family and friends. If you’re on the hunt for thoughtful gifts that hold a symbolic meaning, just let these Issey Miyake Floral Corsages (THB 3,000) do all the talking. Crafted from the brand’s special textiles, these floral-shaped brooches elevate anyone’s outfits with their delicate petal details and colourful shades. Send them to someone you care for so that your messages become a graceful flower language. – CO

 

Tom Ford Black Orchid Lip Colour

Tom Ford’s Black Orchid perfume has been my signature scent since I was 16, and so when I saw that Tom Ford Beauty was releasing a limited edition Black Orchid Lip Colour (THB 2100) in Thailand, I knew I had to get my hands on it as soon as I could. With a creamy texture in a rich dark shade, it has been the hottest accompaniment on all my dinner dates this month, adding a touch of mysterious glamour to all my evening ensembles. Much like just about anything Tom Ford produces, the lipstick is sultry, seductive, and downright sensational. All my pucker ups and pouts have been on point lately. Thanks, as always, Tom! — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
