Magic Mall

August 01, 2016
Siam Discovery
Calling all shopaholics! Bangkok’s Siam Discovery has had a serious multi-million-dollar makeover. Tempting new openings at the recently renewed luxe mall include a clutch of covetable global brands, displayed across seven themed floors of interactive ‘hybrid retail’ experiences dubbed ‘The Exploratorium’, encouraging you to discover what you like.

Get your Japanese fashion fix at the ‘World of Issey Miyake’, the first Miyake concept store outside Japan, and the first to offer products for guys in Thailand. Expect sinuous silhouettes, signature pleats and rad colours. Meanwhile, edgy fash store Comme des Garçons touts graphic slogan tees, and genius Tokyo-based designer Oki Sato (of Nendo) advised on the mall’s architecture and interiors.

For home-sweet-homewares heaven, head to the third-floor Creative Lab. Denmark’s Hay is hotter than hounds-in-handbags thanks to its Scandi-minimal modern accessories, from furniture to tableware, ornaments and bags. Alongside furny and lights, trendsetting UK designer Tom Dixon does a mean line in desk and table accessories, with a witty Britty twist. Also on board is Italian A-Lister Kartell, famous for its contempo plastic-fantastic furniture and accessories by global stars.

Indie outfits include Tokyobike for belle Brooks wheels and cycling clobber (plus a customised bike-fitting service and test-ride space), multi-brand mens’ den Pur.Suit, and guys n’ gals’ Thai streetwear fave Cazh for East-meets-Americana. Art, customisation and personal stylist services, a café and live radio show up the fun factor, along with a wall displaying customers’ Insta feeds. With over 5,000 global and local labels, you may need those handy Hay totes after all!
