The Wonder Room
Buzz: After its recent grand opening, The Wonder Room (a shop at and operated by Siam Center) looks to present a mix of pieces from the city’s up and coming designers, primarily women’s wear.
Vibe: Pretty sophisticated, with a black marble floor. Clothing runs around the sides of the store, a glass showcase displays bags, accessories are presented on faux steel tables and there are some added artsy touches, including paper butterflies hanging from the ceiling.
Goods: The shop carries female local designer’s products, switching brands around every four months. For now, it stocks ethnic pattern canvas bags from Rudimentary, rock-themed leather carriers from Fresh Meat, Object of Imagination’s printed scarves, sweet-palette retro swimwear from Virgin Daisies, minimal tops from Kem Issara and faux gold accessories from Pitch and Kiss de L’amour. Bags start from B3,000, accessories from B2,000, scarves from B2,890, swimwear from B4,290 and tops from B4,000. We particularly like the 2011 Good Design Award mechanical watch-themed accessories from Pitch (pictured below).
Why you’ll be back: Although the staff seems a tad clueless and prices are high, the shop does have a keen eye for fine products. You’ll also return for the rotating stock and the fact that products sold here are not available anywhere else.
