If there is anyone who can attest to whether fashion and food are two industries that make great bedfellows, it would be Thai creative Janchittra Tantikarn. The 34-year-old was formerly based in Singapore for seven years where she worked as a fashion stylist. Today, she runs the fashion label Janesaisquoi – known for its flirty satin draped pieces – and co-owns Hug Samui Restaurant and Bar, out of her home city of Bangkok.
Her two main passion projects are in addition to being a freelance social media manager for Lotus Arts de Vivre, a brand that curates and preserves Asian heritage and traditional craftsmanship, and the web content editor for Gucci Thailand. With much of her current pursuits based in the bustling metropolis, it’s no surprise that she describes her relationship with the city as “kinda like a love-hate relationship.”
Jan – as she’s affectionately known – says that she loves that the city’s a melting pot of bygone and contemporary vibes. What does she mean exactly? Take a look at her Bangkok picks ahead to find out.
