Bangkok-based designer Milin Yuvacharuskul, Puchong Nilratana and Guarboon Chuanboon gave birth to this dainty, exquisite SS 11 line aptly named Under Sense and Sensibility.
It’s all pastel colours, soft pleats, chiffon and summery graphic lines. And her shortened name is Mimi! Instant love! She also scored a prominent internship with Jill Stuart, whose Spring collection I was exploring before being side-tracked by the amazing designs of Milin.
Thailand seems to be producing amazing designers at every turn! Sretsis (as I mentioned in a previous post) and now Milin! Not to mention the food! I love me some Thai Curry! So I’m very seriously considering visiting Bangkok, flights from Australia aren’t too expensive either. Milin is still very low-key at present – their only stockists are in Asia: Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.
But ever since the release of her new SS 11 line, Milin has been on the radar of numerous fashion blogs. Susie of Style Bubble even did a piece on her (it’s thanks to her for some of the nice up-close pictures above) where she visited the Blueprint store in Singapore. I’m really hoping this means the brand will grow exponentially, though I’d imagine it would take many more years for it to arrive in Australia.
Above is a spread from Elle Thailand and Wallpaper magazine featuring Under Sense and Sensibility the collection with a mod 60’s twist. Defined waists are my favourite, and Milin does them oh-so classily! On the darker side, there’s this cut-out black playsuit from SS 11 (below) and some fantastic gold-fringed heels from the AW 10 Cat Fight for Spotlight collection.
