A collaboration with local artists to bring guests closer to contemporary Asian culture, Art & Fashion in Motion 2018 transforms nostalgic carriages with an artist’s makeover by Thai artist, Somnuek (Parn) Klangnok; and celebrates the glamour of travel by introducing stylish new uniforms by Thai fashion house Vvon Sugunnasil.
Rolling throughout Southeast Asia, Parn’s creations are inspired by the magical sensation of travelling in a fantasy world inspired by Parn’s personal experience of travelling aboard Eastern & Oriental Express. The artwork depicts an ethereal world of Princes & Princesses, adorned with beautiful flowers, travelling in their joyful fantasy world for eternity, celebrating the Art of Living Well.
Meanwhile Founder and Creative Director of Vvon Sugunnasil, Thattaworn Sugunnasil presets a minimalist interpretation of classic Oriental style with sabai draping necklines, prominent buttons, and subtle adornments. Individual uniforms are specifically designed for each area of the train, all featuring classic tailoring that reflects the timeless luxury of rail travel.
