SRETSIS SAWASDEE WAN MAE COLLECTION
On the occasion of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, The Queen Mother’s birthday, Sretsis honors Her Majesty’s effortless beauty and innate style with a capsule collection that celebrates the beauty of Thai silk and the traditional Thai gowns Her Majesty fashionably championed and catapulted to international recognition.
With the uncertainty of international travel still looming, what better time than the present to look within the borders of one’s own nation as a source of inspiration. With the latest “Sawasdee Wan Mae” capsule collection, Sretsis not only celebrates Thai Mother’s Day, but also the beauty of dressing up and the intricacies of our rich culture. Pim Sukhahuta states, “In a time when everything slowed down, we looked to create something sustainable and everlasting with classics – in absolutely every aspect of the word – that support local Thai crafts and artisanal silk makers. Traditional Thai gown has always been worn, but it never received as much recognition as when Their Majesties went on the royal wedding tour around the world. The world stood in complete awe at how refined and beautiful The Queen looked, and also her stunning outfits created with a legendary French couture house. We took the idea of mixing Thai craftsmanship with western sensibilities and Her Majesty’s wardrobe as inspiration for juxtaposing traditional details with Sretsis signature touch. The collection offers a modern yet respectful interpretation of occasionwear that we hope will come back into vogue for not only religious ceremonies, but eveningwear and gala-attire.”
