Maggie Choo’s – Bangkok’s Piece of Shanghai & its Musicians

Posted By admin / July, 17, 2013 / 0 comments

Maggie Choo’s is the latest creation of the popular designer Ashley Sutton, the man behind the incredible ‘Bookshop’ and ‘Iron Fairies’ bars. Located at the end on Silom road, under the Novotel Fenix Silom and near to the famous ‘Sky Bar’ at Lebua, Maggie Choo’s is both a restaurant and a bar, a place like nothing we have seen before in Bangkok or beyond.

The roster of live music includes R&B, blues and soul from Keithen Carter, a veteran of the Chicago scene
who has worked with Chaka Khan, Ramsey Lewis and Curtis Mayfield, among others. When he’s not crooning and finger clickin’ beside the piano, there might be a DJ spinning or a set from Jul & Co, a French duo who fuse live lounge grooves with Daft Punk-style vocoder.

We had a chance to shoot Keithen and Jul & Co there. See some pictures from the session below:

AB-Normal – Siam Center Fashion Visionary 2013

Posted By admin / April, 18, 2013 / 0 comments

AB-Normal is the streets-wear brand for these who prefer the kind of edgy simplicity that gives wearers a unique character of their own – the inspiration comes from sculpture. Naming his collection “Wear White”, designer Thaweesak Samanmit interprets the solid, strong structure of sculpture with a tender perspective. Using techniques that involves lines and polka dots, achieved through tucking and studs, the collection comes in an organic palette such as colors of soil, stone, cement and sand with white serving as a staple alongside beige, grey and black. The silhouettes remain simple, albeit with smart details in AB-Normal’s Signature “Simple Chic” style.

Prada back to golden era of cinema

Posted By admin / February, 24, 2013 / 0 comments

There are designers who make expensive, glitzy clothes for rich people – a lot of these designers show in Milan. And then there is Miuccia Prada.

She too sells top-end fashion, and rather well it seems given the label’s current buoyant profits, but with Prada it’s always a slightly more complicated story. After all, this is the designer who made hits out of banana earrings, stacked raffia lace-up shoes and satin jackets with vintage cars on their backs.

Her latest offering for women, shown in the Italian fashion capital on Thursday evening was an undoubtedly sexy affair though never in an obvious kind of way. That is not Prada’s thing. Instead, running through the gorgeous 49 looks on the catwalk – there was not a pair of trousers in sight – was an air of a vintage film heroine whose wardrobe was a little disheveled and whose hair was wet, as if it had been styled straight out of a 1990s grunge-era photograph.

“You can’t be romantic. There are so many restrictions. You have to control your feelings,” Prada said backstage after the show. The idea of romance was balanced for the designer with rawness. “Raw elegance,” she concluded was central to the look of the Prada woman this season.

That explains the hair. It also explains the way dresses or tops were often worn pushed off the shoulder – to show a dash of flesh. For example, an otherwise prim blue and white gingham dress appeared with several of the top buttons undone. Or a coat with furry gauntlet sleeves – this statement sleeve shape appeared throughout the show – which was pushed off the back of the shoulder and worn with a red leather skirt.

Certain things were carried over from the recent menswear collection – Prada said she would like to design more harmoniously for men and women but explained that it is just too difficult. Coloured leather coats and short Harrington jackets in the women’s show also appeared on the men’s catwalk in January.

The dominant skirt styles were tidy pencils or slightly fuller shapes, though it was the new two-length, lop-sided shape, which is likely to be seen in a lot of fashion shoots come autumn when the clothes arrive in stores.

Dresses with beautiful embroidery, such as the opening look, also offered a kind of cinematic moodiness, which the set, featuring black and white silhouettes of girls and cats or dreamy muted landscapes, seemed to echo.

Gingham bowling bags and metallic heavy tread two-strap sandals both look likely to sell with the usual swiftness of a hit Prada accessory.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – always something extraordinary

Posted By admin / February, 24, 2013 / 0 comments

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an annual fashion show sponsored by Victoria’s Secret, a brand of lingerie and sleepwear. Victoria’s Secret uses the show to promote and market its goods in high-profile settings. The show features some of the world’s leading fashion models such as current Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, and Lindsay Ellingson.

American network television broadcasts the show during prime time. The first few shows in the 1990s were held in the days preceding Valentine’s Day to promote the brand for this holiday. They were not aired on national television. In 1999 and 2000 the show was webcast. Beginning in 2001, the shows were moved ahead of the Christmas holiday season. Also in 2001, the show made its network television broadcast on ABC, though in all subsequent years, it has been broadcast on CBS. The show has been held at a variety of locations in different cities including Miami, Los Angeles, and Cannes. The first four shows were held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, but since it has become a televised event it has most often been held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City.

The show is a lavish event with elaborate costumed lingerie, varying music by leading entertainers, and set design according to the different themes running within the show. The show attracts hundreds of celebrities and entertainers, with special performers and acts every year. Each year, twenty to forty of the world’s top fashion models are selected to perform in the fashion show. In a typical year, this includes about a half dozen women under contract to the company,[1] known as Victoria’s Secret Angels, who help publicize the event. The giant angel wings worn by the models, as well as other wings of various forms and sizes such as butterfly, peacock, or devil wings, have become emblematic of the Victoria’s Secret brand.
