LA­BEL LOVER

VATANIKA

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Cen­tral Saint Martins and London Col­lege of Fash­ion in Womenswear and Bags & Ac­ces­sories, re­spec­tively, and hav­ing been im­mersed for a num­ber of years in the cap­i­tal’s eclec­tic fash­ion scene, Thai-born Vatanika Pata­mas­ingh launched her epony­mous womenswear la­bel with a de­but col­lec­tion for au­tumn/win­ter 2011. The la­bel is now recog­nised as one of Thai­land’s top lux­ury fash­ion brands. The de­signer—named last year as one of Asia Tatler’s most stylish women—is known for her sig­na­ture prints in­spired by the nat­u­ral world, and a fem­i­nin­ity that comes with a healthy side dish of at­ti­tude. Her SS17 col­lec­tion con­tin­ues in the same vein. Pre­sented in an ar­ray of cool tones—white, grey, black, navy blue and even pale pink— and light, wear­able fab­rics, such as silk satin, mesh and su­per light­weight cot­ton, the gos­samer-thin clothes are given a mas­cu­line edge with bold pin­stripes and ro­bust golden chain dec­o­ra­tions. These are beau­ti­ful, sleek and slinky clothes for fear­less, fem­i­nine girl bosses.
