Ying and Her Yang

Real es­tate ex­ec­u­tive Kantaluk Hongladarom, our cover girl for No­vem­ber, per­son­i­fies Coco Chanel’s maxim that a girl should be classy and fab­u­lous

Thailand Tatler - - BEHIND THE SCENES -

Ying Kantaluk Hongladarom was the epit­ome of grace and el­e­gance when we met for our No­vem­ber is­sue cover shoot. The 47-yearold ar­rived at the lux­u­ri­ous The Diplo­mat 39 con­do­minium look­ing cool and ca­sual in a white shirt and jeans and through­out the day she showed the same sense of élan as she rocked pieces of jew­ellery by Chanel and posed ef­fort­lessly for the cam­era in out­fits by the likes of Prada, Dior and Ralph Lau­ren.

Hav­ing stud­ied in Aus­tralia, Switzer­land and the United States and worked for in­ter­na­tional fi­nan­cial pow­er­houses such as Gold­man Sachs in New York and SGV-Arthur An­der­sen in Bangkok, this well-trav­elled work­ing mother is very much a ci­ti­zen of the world. A self-con­fessed lover of art and de­sign, she was re­laxed and elo­quent when talk­ing about her up­bring­ing, ca­reer and philoso­phies for life. And be­fore the day was out she showed her down-to-earth side by hap­pily pitch­ing in to put pieces of fur­ni­ture and dec­o­ra­tive ob­jects ap­pro­pri­ated for the photo shoot back in their orig­i­nal po­si­tions.

Creative at heart, Kan­taluck is in­spired by a love of art and can re­call where and when she pur­chased spe­cific pieces with pho­to­book clar­ity
