Him and Her: Thai Fashion Designer

Him and Her was launched in 2010 by the couple and fashionistas Diloklarp ‘Him’ Junthachotibutr and Ploy ‘Paloy’ Horwang.

Eventually, these Thai fashion designers began creating womenswear themselves when they moved to their new location. Their fashion design is very popular with Thai celebrities today, offering chic, trendy but also dynamic attire. This is just right for the Bangkok fashionistas who like flamboyance and twists in their outfits.

What is more, Him and Her can also be described as edgy and youthful. Thus, it provides the perfect fit for modern girls. The brand offers clothes that are made for the fashionistas who like to make a statement through fashion and express their personality.

Hence, this label is indeed very much influenced by the founder Ploy’s vigorous character and lifestyle. By the way, she has also done some modelling herself. Thus, her desgins are not only young and edgy but also sophisticated. In this way, Him and Her has proved to be a brand that is not afraid to evolve and develop.

Thus, in 2013 Ploy collaborated with ‘Boss’ Pongsanakorn Samnakvicha in order to infuse Boss’ masculine style to Him and Her’s designs. This was to add more dynamic and sportiness to the designs. Hence, Him and Her’s recent collections have been well received by Thai celebrities like actresses Ploy Cherman Boonyasak and Sirin ‘Cris’ Horwang.

Finally we may also describe this Thai label as streetwear fashion with a girly touch that is nevertheless striking and extravagant.

Anisha takes her inspiration mainly from her own personality and from her experiences. Her motto is that a woman is most beautiful when she is in love. This is also reflected in her fashion designs. Hence, Anisha creates very feminine and sensual womenswear that flatter the female body. Thus, her tops exude femininity but at the same time they are also elegant and sophisticated.

What is more, she creates long and short dresses that flatter the right female body features. The flared pants and jumpsuits are just as complimentary and charming. Thus, Anisha prefers soft and flowing fabrics like chiffon and silk which are of a high quality. For this reason, Lovebird is also very much concerned with providing flawless pattern-making and high-quality production.

The latest collections from this brand are the Autumn/Winter 2014 ‘Silent Roar’ and the Spring/ Summer 2015 ‘A Day in Capri’ collections. The ‘Silent Roar’ collection is inspired by winter landscapes, snowy mountains and the snow leopard which is considered the spirit of the winter. Hence, the colour scheme is cool and cold including icy blue and grey tones but also earthy tones.

In contrast, ‘A Day in Capri’ is inspired by the enchanted Capri Island and is supposed to represent a woman with alluring charms. This collection brings out the mood of the summer season with sweet colour hues. In short, it is all about timeless glamour and also inspired by Valentino, the world-famous Italian designer.
