Spotlight: Sretsis

Sisterly Fashion Love in Bangkok ~

Bangkok Thailand, a place known for its buzzing street markets and mega shopping complexes, is a shopper’s paradise. Trying as I did to experience all that Bangkok shopping had to offer, I was taken on an exciting ride. From scouring the endless, cramped, humid markets that stayed open until the wee hours of the morning, to strolling the countless gleaming air conditioned malls Bangkok, proved to have something for everyone.

That something for me was Gaysorn, Bangkok’s premium shopping center. This shopping experience was on the opposite end of the sweaty street market spectrum. Gaysorn was a breath of polished, (air conditioned) fresh air. Dior, Fendi, and La Perla all have homes here, but the store I was most interested in locating was Sretsis.

With the annual release of their Summer Love collection, this store was on my must see list. The collection, titled “Oh, My Dear, Deer!” held true to the Sretsis signature: playful, feminine, and sophisticated with these components reflected in the décor of the store. Black hardwood floors met light colored fabric panels on one side and clean white walls on the other. Furniture straight out of a Victorian fairytale invited the clientele to sit and try on the drool-inducing shoe collection. Ruffled jumpers and lace tops hung from the branches of a faux tree planted in the center of the store. From their collection to their store, Sretsis hit the nail of femininity and luxury on the head.

Sretsis, which is “sisters” spelled backwards, is the brainchild of three fashion-forward sisters. Graduating from New York’s Parson’s School of Design, Pim Sukhahuta embarked on creating this international brand. With her sister Kly who handles the marketing, and Matina who created an accompanying accessory line, these three sisters went from playing childhood dress up to dressing fashionable women across the globe.

Spotlight: Benny Gold

Striking Gold in the Heart of San Francisco

Streetwear boutique caters to the trendy young gent, carrying graphic t-shirts, button-ups, classic shoes, scarves, jackets, hats, even Benny Gold inscribed gold pens – Benny Gold has you covered from head to toe. Going for the Gold, the line has expanded to also include high quality denim, all natural body soaps, along with Jansport and Benny Gold collabo backpacks.

The concept behind the brand started with a sticker and a dream. Benny began posting stickers around town that said “Stay Gold.” Stay Gold to him is “a reminder that all the ideas and experiences that we hold dear are the real gold inside each of us” (bennygold.com).

Tired of working for other people, a very motivated Benny created a dope label that resides in a modern simplistic store front in the Mission district of San Francisco. Smack dab in the heart of hipsterdom, a more phentermine ideal location for a boutique of this caliber cannot be found. On his quest toward creative freedom, Benny Gold was born, and he has catapulted this brand into a highly sought-after one, not only in SF but worldwide. Continue reading
