Asava
The term ‘Thai fashion’ might bring to mind apparel as brightly hued as a fruit-filled floating market, but trust us when we say Siam style isn’t all about fuschia sabais and gold-fringed sampots. Take, for example, the mainly muted raiments of Bangkok-based, elegantly femme fashion brand Asava.

Started nine years ago by Parsons grad Polpat Asavaprapa, the sophisticated label exemplifies ultra-urban yet utterly timeless style – more often than not with pieces cut from high-tech, high-quality fabric of black, white or classic cobalt. And this simple form has made their two boutiques, located in Siam Paragon and the oh-so chic EmQuartier, firm favourites of the city’s sartorially savvy.

Saunter into either, and you’ll find a sleek space of glass and polished concrete – a background as carefully restrained as the on-show wears.

The current Autumn/Winter range features playful cinched shirtdresses, banded skirts, long tailored trench coats and stripey shifts, all in stark monochrome shades. The only colour comes from a few floaty navy blouses, a pair of azure wide-leg pants and the rouge of a red carpet-ready gown. Pair any with some nude peep toes and a slicked-back do and you’re ready to strut. Utter perfection.
