Supawadee Siriratanapol, designer and owner of fashion brand Wee, draws on the ancient charms of Mainland China for her new collection, which was showcased recently at Lhong1919 on Chiang Mai Road, Klong San district.
“I really appreciate the hard work and tolerance of the Chinese people and I’ve always loved Chinese art and culture from the past. The murals created by fine Chinese craftsmen inspired the designs of my collection for autumn-winter 2017. The designs are all beautiful and full of auspicious characters such as birds, butterflies, fighting fish and peonies, which are delicate but strong.
“My colour palette includes red, fuchsia, black, navy blue, green, white and gold and the outfits have soft lines that will please the modern woman.”
Silk and jacquard imported from Japan and China are the fabrics of choice and often decorated with French lace and embroidered beads and gems.
The ready-to-wear line is comfortable enough for daily use while retaining the classic design of the 1950s through A-line skirts and oversized trousers. Flower prints in soft pink and nude are enhanced with delicate bead embroidery.
Wee is available at Siam Paragon, the Emporium, and the EmQuartier as well as online at www.WeeBangkok.com. Call (02) 150 9587 or (098)254 9434 to find out more.
