THE ALCHEMISTS BY SEKSARIT THANAPRASTTIKUL


The Alchemists is the brainchild of Thai designer Seksarit Thanaprasittikul. After interning with Wim Neels in Antwerp, Ann Demeulemeester in Paris and Carol Christian Poell in Milan and winning a finalist spot ath the 5th International Talent Support competition in Trieste, Thanaprasittikul returned to Bangkok and launched his avant-garde label The Alchemists. His first collection was well-received by both local and international fashion critics.
Meeting Seksarit in the flesh was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Bangkok. I never expected that a reputable designer like him would be so nice and accommodating to somebody who's relatively new to the retail industry. I totally had a great time exchanging ideas with Seksarit while sipping my latte at Greyhound Cafe! It felt like talking to a long lost friend. It was definitely the right decision to include his label, The Alchemists to my boutique since we obviously share the same aesthetics as far as fashion is concerned.

Check out his previous collections below! Expect UNISEX to stock some of his most coveted pieces like his signature waistcoats and deconstructed button-down shirts!
