If local brands and unique designs are what shoppers in Bangkok are after, the fashion boutiques around the capital are the best places to head for. Situated within luxurious malls or tucked away off the busy Sukhumvit Road, here are seven fashion boutiques worth visiting in Bangkok.
(un) FASHION Vintage
Visitors who have a passion for leather need to make their way to (un) FASHION Vintage. This old-world fashion boutique is also a restaurant and café, brewing some of the best coffee in town, also serving both Western and Thai cuisine. Just adjacent these eateries are two small fashion boutiques; one is dedicated to men’s items and the other to women’s. Stacked on shelves, hanging from the ceiling, tucked away in a wicker basket – both stores are jam-packed with items made of leather. The majority of the secondhand items found here are shoes and bags, hailing from all around the world. (un) FASHION Vintage is located a short motorbike taxi or 20-minute walk away from the BTS skytrain station Ekkamai.
Those with an eccentric sense of style will love the bold designs of the clothing found at Wonder Anatomie, located in Siam Center, one of the most luxurious shopping malls in the capital. The clothing here certainly has a city edge, with ensembles sure to catch people’s attention with their vibrant designs and colors. The décor found at Wonder Anatomie is almost as noteworthy as its clothing. With a ceiling designed to look like skeletal remains, the store itself is a work of art. All those shopaholics looking to update their closet should at least make a pit stop at this unique fashion boutique in Bangkok.
The next fashion boutique on our list is also found in Siam Center. Painkiller Atelier, a Bangkok-based menswear label, aims to tell stories with its unique clothing designs. The clothing at Painkiller Atelier focuses on dressing men in everyday wear to help them take on the city, with items that are stylish yet not too flashy. Comfort is key in an unbearably hot city such as Bangkok, so the boutique has many items of clothing that are breathable yet maintain the clothing’s signature style. They also have another location in The EmQuartier off the BTS skytrain station Phrom Phong and one in Siam Discovery.
Camp BKK is favored by many stylish women who call Bangkok home. Situated in the heart of the city, the store aims to provide an oasis, just like the experience of going camping. Clothes by a number of designers fill up the racks at Camp BKK, with so many ensembles to choose from that the store itself feels relatively crowded. There are over 70 top brands to choose from, with everything from bags to shoes to jewelry and more all at an affordable price. The fashion boutique is located just steps from the busy Sukhumvit Road.
