With a myriad of luxury labels in Bangkok, sometimes it’s difficult to keep track of the new releases all the time. As editors at Lifestyle Asia, we’re privileged to get a first look at the most exciting new launches every single day, but it’s virtually impossible to cover every single lust-worthy find we have our eyes on. 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. From Roger Vivier’s graphic pumps to Mulberry’s embroidered floral bag, browse through our specially selected, top-rated picks to uncover what our editors are obsessing over this week.
Pumps are usually not my favourite type of footwear, mainly because of the chunky shapes that don’t really fit my frame. However, when I came across Roger Vivier Belle Vivier (THB 34,000), I changed my mind completely. Unlike typical pumps, this pair of shoes comes with multi-colour patchworks and a slim silhouette, which can give off the illusion of long legs. Its 4.5-cm block heels will not only make us appear taller, but also help cushion our feet while we’re walking. Embellished with the French house’s iconic buckle, Belle Vivier is effortlessly stylish, offering hints of the contemporary Parisian women. — Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer
With vintage fashion making a terrific comeback, the embroidered florals that may have once been viewed as old-fashioned are now back in full force. I love how Mulberry gives its Small Winslow (THB 59,000) a seasonal update, featuring a plush texture in its Fall/ Winter 2018 collection. Inspired by the nostalgic vibes of British glamour, the bag is eye-catching and unique with a series of patterned floral accents. It also comes with a practical cross-body chain and compact size that can effortlessly turn into an evening handbag. Stylish and chic, this embroidered bag definitely scores plenty of green marks this season. — CO
Originating from the Che Kung Temple in Hong Kong, the wind mill symbol is known to represent good fortune and prosperity, with plenty of jewellery houses incorporating the emblem into their designs. Aurora Diamond‘s The Miracle Mill (THB 10,990) is no exception, featuring delicate coils winding around a circle and believed to draw positive influences to its wearer. The pendant thereby not only resonates grateful, symbolic meanings, but also boasts a stylish silhouette. After all, it’s always a good idea to step out with a jewellery piece that can boost a little luck, right? — CO
In its 2018 edition, the 38.5mm Longines Record watch (approx. THB 267,900) gets a warm upgrade that I’m loving for a cool summer timepiece. Featuring a solid piece of 18k rose gold, the pink blush of the case compliments the stunning mysteriously purple blue sunray dial and alligator strap, giving the Record collection that oomph it had been missing. Featuring an almost classic vintage feel, the dress watch looks sophisticated without being boring, and makes for a handsome timepiece for the handsome gentleman this season. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
Living in this ridiculously hot and humid weather, my lids can get extremely oily during midday, and my eyeliner often ends up below my eyes, creating dark smudges that make me look like I didn’t get enough sleep the night before. Luckily, I found this lifesaver, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Eyeliner (THB 900), which surprisingly lives up to my expectations with its highly-pigmented, long-wear formula that stays put all day. With its felt tip applicator, I also find it very easy to apply and create a perfect feline flick, giving me that wide-awake look. The brand has just recently launched its limited edition version to celebrate its 10th year anniversary, featuring a gold packaging that’s more exclusive than its usual black one. This is now your great opportunity to grab it before it’s gone. — CO
