The Emporium and The EmQuartier shopping complexes showcase the latest in luxury fashion in “The Emporium and the EmQuartier Vogue Loves Luxe” event running in partnership with Vogue Magazine Thailand and with the sponsorship of Citi Credit Cards, until the end of March.

“To welcome the new fashion trends and collections from the 2018 Spring/Summer season that have created a buzz with influencers and fashionistas from Paris, New York, London, Milan and Tokyo, we have carefully curated what we consider the must-have items from international labels such as Burberry, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Celine, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Miu Miu, Valentino, as well as exclusive brands like Dior Homme, Roger Vivier and Collection of Style,” says Onthira Bharksuwana, deputy managing director.

“A modern brand that offers timeless designs, Collection of Style debuted in 2007 in London and will be opening its first store in Thailand very soon.”

Luxury French jewellers Van Cleef & Arpel join the event with an exhibition of classical timepieces, both vintage and newly designed. “The Poetry of Time” exhibition was first held at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Geneva and has now travelled to The Emporium. 

Roger Vivier, a leather and shoe expert from France, launches new slippers made exclusively for its Thailand boutique, with the slip ons coming in Black and Petrolio Green.”

Vogue fashion editor Jongkol Palarit, says she’s particularly excited about Prada’s face-printed collection, Raf Simons using Dennis Hopper and Sandra Brant prints on their denims, shirts and dresses, and the print designs on the short-sleeved shirts from Dior Homme.

Nature-infused prints are a fashion staple every summer, but this time they come with a twist. Nicolas Ghesquiere of Louis Vuitton and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino, give floral prints a colourful makeover, as do Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu and Prada. Flowers appear too on the ’80s dresses from Celine, Emilio Pucci, Loewe, the classic Vara Bow from Salvatore Ferragamo and Dolce & Gabbana while Gucci opts for Java fish as the print for its collection of long dresses, and Louis Vuitton brings floral prints to every look. The ribbon trend is also popular, not only for earrings, headbands or bag straps, but this time also appearing on shoes from Jimmy Choo and Salvatore Ferragamo’s purses.

Plastic is in this season on coats and skirts and finds it way to bags like Fendi’s Mon Tresor, Diorclub’s sunglasses, Chanel’s boots and Burberry coats.
