Patron of the arts and and Bangkok bon vivant, the late Patsri Bunnag amassed an incredible fashion collection.
Chiang Mai's Maiiam Contemporary Museum (081-386-6899, www.maiiam.com) has launched a stunning new fashion-and-art exhibition that showcases the wardrobe of late Thai style icon Patsri Bunnag.
The wife of Jean-Michel Berdeley and mother of Eric Bunnag, museum founders, Patsri was one of Thailand’s first models, a prominent society figure and, together with her husband, amassed one of the world’s most outstanding collections of Thai artwork.
The new exhibition, called Mon Art Du Style (my art of style), places garments from Patsri’s stunning wardrobe—including designs by Lanvin, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Nakara, Tirapan and Pichita—alongside matching pieces from the museum’s art collection.
Among the featured art pieces are works by Montien Boonma, Pinnaree Sanphitak, Manit Sriwatnijphum, Chatchai Puipia, Niti Watuya and Navin Lawalchaikul.
The exhibition runs through Jun 25.
