Thailand Tatler - - CONCIERGE INBOX -

Agiant oc­to­pus-in­spired neck col­lar. A knuckle ring in the shape of ten­ta­cles. An ear cuff rem­i­nis­cent of un­der­wa­ter life. Darunothai Va­jro­daya’s Lost at Sea is a jew­ellery col­lec­tion with a dif­fer­ence. Grad­u­at­ing from Chu­la­longkorn Univer­sity in com­par­a­tive lit­er­a­ture she de­cided she wanted to do some­thing more cre­ative so en­rolled in Cen­tral Saint Martins in Lon­don in jew­ellery de­sign. Here Darunothai found her­self in her el­e­ment, win­ning prizes with her works, such as at the Howard Hobbs Me­mo­rial Process Awards and the Swarovski Trend Fore­cast­ing com­pe­ti­tion. She has also ex­hib­ited at the Gold­smith In­sti­tu­tion and Vic­to­ria & Al­bert Mu­seum and was men­tioned by Wall­pa­per UK as a grad­u­ate to watch in 2014. Upon re­turn­ing to Thai­land, this lady from the il­lus­tri­ous Va­jro­daya fam­ily launched the Mag­i­cal Re­al­ism line fol­lowed by her epony­mous brand which will be avail­able at the Em­po­rium this month, fol­lowed by an out­let at Gaysorn Vil­lage. She has re­ceived good feed­back for her jew­ellery from the Chi­nese mar­ket and is hop­ing to par­tic­i­pate in China Fash­ion Week.
