“I would start my day with rice con­gee or jok at a lit­tle place near my home called Jok Sam Yan. Af­ter that, I’d head to the Chatuchak week­end mar­ket to dig for vin­tage mil­i­tary and work wear. When I’m about to faint from heat­stroke, I’d visit the Harnn Her­itage Spa for a Pa­tumwan Age­less Fa­cial Treat­ment. Next stop: The Siam Ho­tel, one of the most stun­ning ho­tels in Bangkok, for sun­set cock­tails in its riverside bar. For din­ner, I love Nahm, David Thomp­son’s Thai fine-din­ing restau­rant. My fave dish is the squid, pork and prawn soup. Af­ter din­ner, I’d head to Stu­dio Lam for a cock­tail made with their own moon­shine, ya dong. If there were more than 24 hours in a day, I’d also visit Paya, a bou­tique that stocks beautiful hand­wo­ven tex­tiles, wood­craft, bas­kets and rugs, or the Eco­topia space at Siam Dis­cov­ery (pic­tured above) for sus­tain­able prod­ucts, from cloth­ing to or­ganic cos­met­ics to indigo, made lo­cally by my friends at Slow­stitch Stu­dio. I use their fab­rics to make indigo gar­ments for my brand, W’menswear. My col­lec­tions are found on­line or at Onion, a cool bou­tique that car­ries in­die lines from around the world.”
