Onion Store: Aree
We hope he will forgive us for saying so, but Sorasak Chanmantana, the driving stylistic force behind online fashion and lifestyle store Onion, is not unlike an onion himself. His talents are, much like the humble bulb, multi-layered. Begin to peel them back and you’ll discover a behind-the-scenes background in the music industry, a guitarist for indie-rockers Slur, and a fashion impresario who has nurtured his online brand from clicks to bricks. Now, his retail repertoire expands once again with a brand new location in up-n-coming Ari.

Unlike its Ekkamai locale, which is half coffee shop, half style stop, Onion Store: Aree focuses on the sartorial side of things. Trig togs from cult international brands, including urbanite stylings from Saturdays Surf NYC, Stanley & Sons’ signature sacs, and Béton Ciré’s issue of a trad Breton sailor hat that’s become the hip cat’s year-round staple. There’s also a section of the store dedicated to vintage threads and, for those in search of something a little out of the ordinary, never-before-found stock brought over from New York.

If all that retail leaves you restive, find your caffeine fix courtesy of Brave Roasters’ mini corner counter, where a compact carte of quality coffee is on offer for anyone that can’t get through a shopping session unaided. That’s the Onion Store: Aree-t!
