Look Casual Chic in Loungewear From These Thai Fashion Brands
by: The Beat Asia
Loungewear is in, thanks, to the COVID-19 pandemic, which influenced our fashion choices as we saw ourselves at home more than outside.
Don't make the mistake of thinking loungewear is lazy dressing, though. Loungewear can immediately take you from a nice recline on the couch to a Zoom call and a quick errand to the drugstore in the form of soft or silky pants, breezy tops, or comfy sweaters. It's casual and chic at the same time.
For your own loungewear pieces, here are four Thai fashion brands to check out.
FolkCharm is a slow fashion enterprise that works with natural cotton farmers, artisanal communities, and local craftswomen to produce apparels and products that are beautiful, ethical, and rooted in traditional wisdom. It is founded by Passawee Kodaka, a development practitioner with more than seven years of experience in creative economy.
You'll love its comfy and timeless apparel made of 100% natural, chemical-free Thai cotton and Grennet's Organic Certified Fair-trade yarns. We recommend you check out its Cropped Wide Trousers (THB2,100) and this breezy Summer Strap Tank Top (THB840).
Siamese Dreams is a luxury pajamas and loungewear brand whose apparel is designed in Phuket and made in Thailand. Its ethos? "To offer exceptionally made garments in timeless and flattering silhouettes, whilst only using the highest quality natural fabrics we can source locally."
Founded by Mika Wassenaar, Siamese Dreams is her homage to Thailand for all the inspiration it has given her. The label offers accessories, dresses, kimonos, pajamas, loungewear, and more.
Love the comfiness of knitwear? Check out Sasi Knits, a handmade knitwear brand based in Bangkok. Its pieces, which include crop tops, skirts, and tank tops, are handmade-to-order with 100% cotton from Chiang Mai. If you order, expect to wait three to four weeks for your order to be shipped. Sasi Knits also offers worldwide shipping for those who want to get their hands on its cute pieces.
Wakingbee may be a Thai activewear brand, but its pieces aren't one note. It carries versatile cargo pants and joggers in cute colors, as well as printed leggings and comfy tees that can all function as stylish and casual loungewear. We especially love these safari-styled Cargo Pants (THB2,490), which come in olive and blush, and the adjustable City Tee (THB1,390), which come in white, velvet, and blue.
