DRY CLEAN ONLY X THAI TEXTILES

#LOVEOFMYLIFEYOUVEHurtme

1ST INTERNATIONAL

THAI SILK FASHION WEEK DCO X THAI SILK

Traditional Thai textiles are pegged for its dated glamour, challenging textures and

familiar patterns. In a bid to inject relevancy, modernity and “ready towear” property onto Thai textiles, the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture enlisted helps from

9 established brands.

Dry Clean Only reinterpreted and manipulated Thai

cherished textiles with seven carefully crafted looks

that emphasised the majestic quality of Thai

textiles, highlighted their hidden adaptability, and

yet adamantly flew Dry Clean Only signature flags

without compromises.

 

Taking cue from Tom Ford’s 90s Gucci, the main

colour palette included splashes of purple and

green with which J Crew inspired clean constructions.

Under Dry Clean Only’s microscopic attentions to

details, Thai textiles—without losing their true

wonders—were married to vintage garments,

collectible t-shirt patchworks, camouflage and high

craftsmanships in forms of hand beadings and hand

embroideries. To assert that Thai textiles can blend

with any techniques, all beadings and embroideries

were handmade in India. Zooming in on intricate

hand details, eagles seemed to flutter their wings

while flowers moved harmoniously with the wind,

accentuating the height of high crafts and the

modern progression of Thai textiles.

Understated, from the heart, respectful and of high

crafts, the mini collection showcased youthful

modernity of Thai textiles and Dry Clean Only’s

unwavering stance.
