I bought this beautiful fabric during my trip to Thailand last Autumn. All my friends know how obsessed I am with Asian cultures, from India to Japan, everything inspires and fascinates me so much. In my free time I like to study about the asian history, traditions, lifestyle, art, music… Unfortunately I’ve only visited Thailand, therefore I can’t get a deep understanding of the philosophy of that region, even if it feels really close to my heart.
I have this, well let’s say “tradition”, buy something that represents the country I travel to, especially when speaking about as different from the European cultures as Thailand. I’m sure you’ve already heard about the Thai silk, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful and quality textiles on the market. I had known that when I went there, but it’s one thing to touch it and see it in real life. That is why I ended up with a whole Thai Suit and this beautiful fabric. In India, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, elephants are believed to be sacred, that is why I loved it from the second I saw it. Had NO IDEA what I would get out of it, but decided it would look nice as an Indian coat. I was so exhausted after two fashion weeks that I was feeling I needed a break, so these Gianvito Rossi boots were the best (most comfortable) decision!
