Bangklyn Project's Pi Pae on Vintage and Secondhand Fashion

  • Bangklyn Project's Pi Pae on Vintage and Secondhand Fashion

What did you do before Bangklyn Project?
I graduated from engineering school, worked for the BTS for five years, then fled to New York and became a chef. After six years, I moved back to Bangkok and started selling my products at Manga (once at CentralWorld). When that shop closed down, I decided to open my own. It’s been four years now.

What’s the concept?
Contemporary vintage. I reuse real vintage fabrics from New York and do my own design. The name comes from Bangkok and Brooklyn.

The style?
I fully support minimalism. Things should be super normal, nothing fancy and the main concern is the quality. I prefer welcoming customers who really get what I’m talking about. I don’t support products made in China, and I don’t speak to people who walk into the shop wearing a brand new Hermes belt. And I don’t mind if you call me arrogant either.

Can you give us a few tips?
Styles and tones depend on individual preferences and backgrounds, but whatever it is, clothes should perfectly fit your body; not too big nor too small—and they should last a decade.
