Thai Princess Sirivannavari presents her brand’s latest collection at Paris Fashion Week

The second daughter of the King of Thailand, Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana is no stranger to fashion weeks and even less to the industry itself. As a design graduate of the Parisian Chambre Syndicale de la Couture (now IFM), one of the best universities in the industry, the 36-year-old Princess founded her eponymous label Sirivannavari 15 years ago — while still walking the college halls. She has long been at home in the front rows of the world and is often regarded as one of the best dressed queens.

The princess has temporarily swapped her crown for couture, if only until the end of Paris Fashion Week. And that means she dedicates her time to her creations during the industry’s most important seven days. On February 28th and March 1st, her ready-to-wear brand presented its latest Fall/Winter 2023/24 collection at the Paris landmark, the Ritz Hotel.

Although Sirivannavari is already well established in the princess’ home country, where she has opened several physical stores in the capital, the brand has yet to find its way to Europe. A pop-up will open in Milan in the next few weeks, and the princess is hoping to eventually find a home for her creations in Paris. Meanwhile, she explains that her latest collection was inspired by “powerful, independent women in the 1940s.” Above all, she mentions “female pilots” who associate strong, determined female characters. Knowing that the princess was also a badminton champion at home and an exceptional rider, one could confirm that a little bit of herself is also woven into the DNA of the collection.

Evening wear is undoubtedly the highlight of the brand. Gold silk wrap skirts with woven ostrich feathers, alongside chiffon dresses with scoop waists and fitted tuxedo jackets combine to create an idea of ​​sleek modernity for a night out on the town. And if the craftsmanship is definitely infused with a French touch – “we have the same embroidery techniques as Lesage” – all materials (except for the leather, which is sourced in Italy) come from Thailand to allow for a homage to the heritage of the Princess. As for accessories? Evening bags and pouches as well as sunglasses complete every look.

Sirivanari pieces cost between €800 and €2,500 and can be purchased online via the brand’s Instagram and in select Bangkok stores.
