The weather is Bangkok has been dreadful and it doesn’t look set to improve over the weekend, so I am engaging in the laziest kind of shopping: online. Things always look far nicer in the carefully composed pictures , and I am less tempted to buy them if I can’t be in the same room as them as for me shopping is an experience, I like to smell the leather and touch the silk.
I know I go on and on about bags, but I have a new crush this week: the Aristotle Rose bag. Some of them have a waiting list of over 3 months and priced at around 7500 baht (around 150 GBP), so I think it will just stay on the fantasy wish list, but if I had to choose, I would go for a classic leather in bright pink or cherry red.
The brand was created in 2008 by the PR guru and accessory designer from Kloset. It’s taken them a good few years of strangling to reach the top, but now every Hi-So girl in Bangkok is lusting after them. They’ve recently branched into bags with feathers and sparkles but this takes things a bit too Thai for me! Check out their collection on Facebook.
