In a stunning fusion of creativity and cultural homage, The Standard, Hua Hin, and Thai fashion luminary Teema Ruksajit unveiled a mesmerizing capsule collection that echoes the whispers of nature and the depth of mythology. This landmark event, marking the successful launch of The Standard’s Designer in Residence program, took place in the idyllic setting of Hua Hin on November 4, 2023.
Teema Ruksajit, synonymous with innovative Thai fashion, collaborated with the enigmatic Director Jacq, renowned for their intergalactic artistic vision and exquisite hand-embroidered fabrics. The collection, a testament to this creative alliance, featured earth-toned designs meticulously woven from 100% silk and sustainable materials. These pieces, a blend of tradition and contemporary aesthetics, celebrate humanity’s intrinsic bond with nature and the mystical allure of mythology.

Emphasizing unisex and gender-inclusive designs invites a broad audience to experience fashion without boundaries. The versatility of these pieces encourages personal style and expression, symbolizing a new era in Thai fashion where creativity knows no limits.
