Rotsaniyom means ‘taste’ in Thai.
DRY CLEAN ONLY
Recently contracted by Rihanna’s style team to create a series of one-off tour pieces, Dry Clean Only is currently the darling label of the South-East region and for good reason! The creative output of head designer, Patipat ‘Best’ Chaipukdee, is endless, unique and simultaneously highly conscious of the environment and sustainability. Due to the intricacy of the designs, only five garments are produced daily, resulting in heavily decorated statement pieces. Best says his inspiration is both Courtney Love & his loyal customer base.
MONO or Mono Meena is an award-winning, Thai made and Thai inspired jewellery line founded by its head designer, Juthamas ‘Ness’ Koontragul. After graduating with honors from the esteemed Silpakorn University in 2007, Ness’ thesis range of culturally rich pieces developed a loyal following among the Thai fashion set, thus the Mono brand was born. Each Mono collection aims to represent and convey the uniqueness and nuances of Thai identity and history, with cult items drawing primarily from numerology, superstition and traditional Thai patternwork.

Stereotype Bangkok was accidentally established one midnight in the of summer 2009. Three 1980's born boys; Chontee, Bew and Bo, shared an aesthetic flooded with the late 80's/early 90's nostalgia of modern adults. Stereotype's designs focus on minimal, carefully tailored sportswear, with street flourishes. There's a constant theme of clean cut minimalism fused with an unexpected mix of fabrics...think A.P.C meets Bape in the tropics. Stereotype Philosophy = We don't desire to advise the independent being in/on anything...We just enjoy dressing you. ♂♂♂
