Just a few weeks ago, we headed over to Thailand's capital, Bangkok, to attend Thomas Erber's traveling Le Cabinet de Curiosités. Speaking modestly, the experience was incredible. Although Bangkok is not yet considered amongst cosmopolitan Asian bellwethers like Tokyo or Hong Kong with respect to cultural clout, there's undoubtedly a bubbling scene that deserves closer examination. To kick off a week's worth of Bangkok content, we'll be sharing some of our most memorable stops, starting with Siwilai Store.

It's immediately evident that Bangkok has a thriving mall culture and it's not rare nor strange to witness multiple megaplexes in very close proximity. When touring through one of Bangkok’s most luxurious malls - dubbed Central Embassy - we located a hidden gem. After strolling past high fashion mainstays like Gucci, Kenzo, Saint Laurent and A.P.C., we found a subtle storefront on the top floor that piqued our interest. Imagine if Parisian style arbiter colette met the uniqueness of Café Kitsuné - with a full lunch menu. To our surprise, multi-brand shops were not in abundance in Bangkok, so Siwilai stood head and shoulders above the competition. Hard-to-find imprints in the region like Common Projects, Thom Browne, Pigalle and Engineered Garments complement a nicely curated offering of accessories, books and apothecary goods.
