Songkran's just around the corner. 

March, when the weather warms and we begin a collective countdown to the Songkran holidays.
Homegrown swim shorts brand Salawan is way ahead of us, having just launched a collaboration with another Thai designer, Issue.
Fans of the original line will recognize the cartoony Great White (swimming, rearing and swallowing people), here joined by a tropical mishmash of birds, palm trees, rope, ukuleles and other beach symbology.
Swim shorts come in black, red and yellow, or, if you’re especially indecisive, some combination of those colors. Prices start at B2,390.
Available at Issue, Siam Square Soi 3 or online at
