Rock these pants like you’re famous
The New Year is a chance for a fresh start. And nothing helps you get started faster than a fashionable new look with the help of The Selected—a multi-brand concept store (1/F, Siam Center) that lets you embrace your own unique style. The store curates a selection of hard-to-find design products from both local and international brands, meeting everyone’s needs, no matter the style.
To make this festive season even more special, The Selected has collaborated with famous illustrator Suntur and iconic Greyhound Cafe to create products that help you live a zero-waste lifestyle. Suntur took the Greyhound Cafe look to create black and white characters that decorate all kinds of reusable merchandise, including tableware, bucket hats and fabric bags.
The pinto (tiffin carriers, B990) is a definite highlight, thanks to the quirky black and white hamburger graphics painted on the trays. If you’re still searching for a gift that everyone will love, check out the tumbler (B790), which boasts Suntur’s signature graphic-style painting, and the slick-looking, character-printed glass set (B690/ 2 pieces)—a perfect present for couples.
Aside from the new collaboration, The Selected offers over 80 different items across a range of categories. This includes clothing like coral colored swimming pants from international Thailand-based brand Timo Trunk, and clothes with a hint of vintage and countryside from Everythingestok. For bags, we spotted pleated bags made of reused fabrics from Repleat, bright-colored bags with quirky graphics from Cuscus the Cuckoos, canvas duffle bags from modern accessories brand Comma.
There is some cool stationery items, too, like vintage brass scissors from Taiwanese stationery label TOOLS to LIVEBY, and stenciled multi-use metal clips from OCTAEVO—a Spanish brand with a focus on beautifully-crafted stationery and homeware.
For more general lifestyle products, you’ll find foldable tumblers from Stojo—an international brand with earth-conscious design products— diffusers and scented candles with Thai-inspired aromas from local soy wax candle brand Yay.
There are also some neat locally-made skincare and beauty products from Thai organic skincare and haircare brand GLA, and Skin Syrup, which makes everything out of 100 percent natural ingredients.
To help recover from all that walking around, grab a cold brewed tea from organic tea atelier Malou.
