The latest collection from SIRIVANNAVARI, named Mythos Poética, is an epilogue that brings together the brand’s 15 years of creative design by H.R.H. Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya.

H.R.H. Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya, SIRIVANNAVARI Creative Director, said, “As SIRIVANNVARI has reached its 15th anniversary, we have planned a series of celebrations to mark this significant milestone throughout the year, beginning with the Spring-Summer 2020 collection. The inspiration for this season came from my own poems as well as the retrospective of my signature designs, which are modernised to match the theme of the collection. In addition, I have incorporated unfinished work from the past, including some of my designs exhibited when I graduated from École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, which have never been shown in public before.”

The show opened with the pink heart-shaped dress with oversized puff sleeves and silk biker diaper pants adapted from the key look of the Spring-Summer 2008 Collection ‘Presence of the Past’

The show opened with the pink heart-shaped dress with oversized puff sleeves and silk biker diaper pants adapted from the key look of the Spring-Summer 2008 Collection ‘Presence of the Past’ paired with one shoulder top with oversized puff sleeve, in ivory silk chiffon. Fringe details — which was a key technique in the Spring-Summer 2009 Collection ‘Ethnic Rock’ — has been brought back for the ivory peplum vest with the maxi tassel hem, creating an hourglass shaped illusion. The delicate embroidery technique on the tulle blouse — from Spring-Summer 2015 ‘Napoleonic’ — comes in a new pattern this season: ‘Lily of the Valley’.

The show wrapped up with a parade of haute couture gowns which reflect Her Royal Highness’s talent and the marvellous embroidery as SIRIVANNAVARI Atelier and Academy, the in-house workshop of couture embroidery, which shows truly exquisite craftsmanship. This can be seen from the black and white feather embellishment on the fishtail evening gown, lace appliqué on the black maxi mermaid gown with a dramatic draped ribbon, and the finale wedding dress in light pink and white, beautifully draped and embroidered, with a matching white veil.

SIRIVANNAVARI and S’HOMME Spring-Summer 2020 collection has 67 looks in total, (59 womenswear and 8 menswear).

The spotlight continues to shine on the Bijoux Collection, which selectively continues to celebrate the 15th anniversary by revisiting the symbols of the house such as; clover leaf, coin, heart, bee, horse, hummingbird, lily of the house, ray of light and peacock. The creative director brings the jewellery to life under the theme of Grecian Roman, featuring the gold metal and silver applying both shiny and vintage effect.

For S’HOMME, the menswear collection celebrates the luxury of an elegant gentleman. The collection derives from essential patterns with a modern twist, with a special focus on the deconstruction technique

For S’HOMME, the menswear collection celebrates the luxury of an elegant gentleman. The collection derives from essential patterns with a modern twist, with a special focus on the deconstruction technique. The Princess reinterpreted the coat from the Spring-Summer 2018 collection ‘Horse, Helen, Henry’ by combining two different fabrics — pinstripe wool in brown and pink cotton including zipper details paired with winked collar tuxedo shirt and cropped pants.

The key looks also include a cobalt nautical-blue jacket with zipper details, a printed silk shirt paired with slim fit cropped jeans and a patchwork denim shirt with a denim heart-shaped badge embellished with the ‘S’ logo.

The collection also features men’s leather goods, including suede loafers, lace-up shoes, sandals and a clutch made with interwoven leather in both black and latté.
