As the tides in Thailand shift from ultra-conservative to modern and stylish, swimwear designers are striking a pretty balance between functional and flirty. Ashley Niedringhaus finds four Bangkok-based labels making a splash.



With a brand identity rooted in modern updates of timeless classics, Maillot & Co.’s halter necklines and crisscrossing spaghetti straps are modern updates to your mother’s maillot. “Our brand is centered on a minimalist approach,” says Suchanan Lohawitoon, designer and managing director. Lohawitoon’s cool-girl-with-a-twist designs have taken the conservative one-piece to embrace color-blocking and the lessis-more trend. Drawing on her landscape architecture background, which inspired a love of design, the suits in Maillot & Co.’s collection are building blocks for style, where personal flair can come from wraps, jewelry and other accessories.
