ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

Prestige (Thailand) - - CONTENTS - François oosthuizen | fran­[email protected] MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR |

When­ever the term “style” is used, it most com­monly refers to one’s fash­ion or outer ap­pear­ance. But style re­ally is so much more than just your choice of hair­cut, the clothes you wear, or your pre­ferred ac­ces­sories. Style is a to­tal ex­pres­sion of who you are – a com­bi­na­tion of the way you dress, talk, how you carry your­self, and even your thoughts, emo­tions, in­ter­ests, and val­ues. Sim­ply put, it’s how we ex­press our in­ner be­ing out­wardly, as ev­ery­thing on the out­side is merely a re­flec­tion of what’s on the in­side.

At the end of Septem­ber, Sittharmanin “Pam” Susamawathanakun – heiress of her fam­ily busi­ness Su­per­rich Thai­land – re­ceived the Tastemaker Award in the “Style” cat­e­gory from Pres­tige at our talk-of-the-town Tastemak­ers Ball. We have long been a fan of Pam for her sim­ple yet el­e­gant, in­di­vid­u­al­is­tic style. In­side out, she is con­sis­tently im­pec­ca­ble and just one of the nicest peo­ple in town. It was a plea­sure to work with her for our cover shoot this month – made all the more spe­cial by a col­lec­tion of ex­quis­ite jew­ellery watches from Bre­quet. On No­vem­ber 22, it’s time again for one of my favourite Thai fes­ti­vals: Loy Krathong. Apart from the fes­tive mood, the sight of thou­sands of beau­ti­fully-dec­o­rated krathongs float­ing down the river and the sense of com­mu­nity, I kind of like the idea of be­ing able to sim­ply float my wor­ries away… Yes, I re­alise that it’s pri­mar­ily a time to pay re­spect to the god­dess of wa­ter on the night of the 12th lu­nar month and all that, but if we can float away our wor­ries in the same breath, why not!?

Ev­ery month we scour the Earth – lit­er­ally – to bring you the very best of lux­ury; be it new prod­uct re­leases, life­style trends, or once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ences. It’s no dif­fer­ent this month, with our lo­cal and re­gional teams mak­ing stops all over the world to bring you a ver­i­ta­ble feast.

Make time to in­dulge!
