Debuted in Bangkok last week, Jaspal’s latest collection, ‘Karl Lagerfeld For Jaspal’, is the brainchild of Jaspal and Karl Lagerfeld, injecting Karl’s DNA into the design. Sophisticated and chic, Choupette Icon Crossbody Bag (THB 3,595) is hands down one of my favourite pieces from this exclusive launch. Featuring Karl’s signature characters, the bag comes with two silhouettes: his face and a cat named Choupette. With a monochrome colour scheme, these bags are so versatile that I can pair them with any outfit. — Chanya Ormtavesub
To celebrate the launch of its new jewellery collection, Tiffany Paper Flowers — Reed Krakoff’s first jewellery collection for the brand, Tiffany & Co. threw a star-studded party in the New York flagship store last week, with a guest listing rivalling that of Coachella. As someone who simply can’t resist diamond dangling earrings, these stunning diamond and tanzanite open drop earrings immediately caught my eyes as I browsed through the collection. Inspired by the idea of abstract flower petals covered in diamonds with pops of blue tanzanite, the earrings blossom in refined feminity and will an elegant touch to white maxi dresses. —Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
Fashionistas all gave a perfect nod to this floral tote bag (THB 1,700) from Marimekko, and I find it hard to not love it, too. To celebrate its 3rd anniversary in Thailand, the Finnish lifestyle brand has recently released its special edition, which features the brand’s signature flower motifs and smooth cotton fabrics. An ideal bag for any for any day of the week, the tote bag is characterised by breezy silhouettes and summery designs. With its 44x43cm size, I also love the fact that they’re practical but not oversized, allowing me to carry all my essentials with ease. — CO
It was love at first sight when I first saw this piece from Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph collection. Featuring a 18-carat pink gold case and 32 brilliant-cut diamonds set in the bezel, the design of this elegant watch is at once feminent and stylish, but what I love most is how the grey rubber strap effortlessly manages a sporty look without sacrificing elegance. —Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
Note: Audemars Piguet is bringing this watch, along with its heritage timepieces to Bangkok on 8 to 17 June 2018. Displaying the house’s ground-breaking horological innovations for the first time, the “From Le Brassus to Bangkok” will take place on Level G of Central Embassy at 10:30am to 8pm.
Tod’s has taken its Gommino footwear collection to new heights with its latest adorable campaign of Tod’s Yorky Project, featuring Renée, a ballet dancer who’s a daughter of the legendary Rod Stewart and Yorkshire Terrier. I absolutely adore how the brand incorporated fringe elements into the design, which effortlessly exude lively and fun accents. Comfortable and cool, these loafers are made from incredibly soft calf leather with a delicately caramel shade. — CO
