The grand opening for the first ToyWatch Boutique in Thailand was recently overseen by Chanadda Chirathivat, managing director of Glam Lifestyle Co at CentralWorld's Eden Zone. At the centre of attraction during the event was Marco Mavilla, ToyWatch's founder and designer, who flew in from Italy for a night to remember.
Among the socialites and celebrities who gathered at the swish soiree were Sasamon Sanguansin, MR Mannaruemas Yugala, Salisa Chirathivat, U-paporn and Sudthanom Karnasuta, Pim Yuktasevi, Dusadee and Wittawadee Bhansapha, Jate Sopipongstorn, Nuttakorn Choonhavan, Savitree Pangputhipong and Aruya Buddhinan.
"We wanted to create a unique adventure that was sophisticated and mysterious. At the same time, we wanted to pay homage to ToyWatch's themes: Chrono, Rock Candy and Oversize. So, for this reason we decided on a single colour - black - which reflects ToyWatch's philosophy of being intriguing and evocative," says Chanadda.
The boutique is chic, sophisticated and metropolitan. Its futuristic, hi-tech watches are truly trend-setting but have timeless elegance. In addition, the party was used as a venue to introduce the latest three new high-class ToyWatch lines - Strong Collection, Twin Collection and All Black Collection.
A highlight of the event was when attendees shared their thoughts on love. Matthew and Cathleen Maleenont Kichodhan revealed that their love has remained sweet during the past seven years, and grows bigger day by day. ML Kathathong and ML Kwankamol Thongyai, who have been happily married for 17 years, say that each day they are together is a special day.
The climax of the evening was a fashion show for the luminous watches by a parade of Thai superstars including Mario Maurer, Cherman Boonyasak, Krissada Pornverojh, Pakkarami Potranan and Bongkot Kongmalai. The star couples joining on the stage included Sarunrat "Lydia" Visutthithada and her boyfriend Matthew Dean, Kelly Tanapat and Namthip Jongrachtawiboon, and Puri Hiranpruek and Alicia Laisuthruklai.
