Spring/Summer 2024 Collection
A whirlwind of colors, lines, and shapes embraces contemplation, sharing a passion between two figures from different cultures, lives, and worlds. The two artists, from the vast landscape of Mexico to Bangkok and then Paris, connect through the captivating spirit of Frida Kahlo and the fascinating vision of HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya, united by their love for art and painting.
To reflect the transmission of ideas across times and cultures, references are fragmented and reconstructed into sculptural silhouettes that combine graphic lines and feminine curves combined with a folk style and vibrant colors, all adorned with Princess artworks. While a kaleidoscope of colors showcases tailoring savoir-faire, original embroideries are punctuated with precise expertise, and couture-like accessories complete the looks.
Balancing contrast and harmony, the silhouettes play with sleek tops and voluminous skirts, reminiscent of Frida’s favorite Tehuana custom, combined with elongated-pencil shapes that showcase the designer’s motifs—the iconic skeleton and heart motifs. These styles create a surreal rhythm while the sculptural drapery works are reinterpreted in a new melody.
The IRIS Jacket, an emblematic piece of SIRIVANANVARI Maison, is revisited with a mid-length design that echoes the inspiration of Frida’s corset with adding pleats to volumize the hips before blooming into corollas.
