Spring/Summer 2018 Collection
Inspired by South East Asian Culture
The Jim Thompson Spring/Summer 2018 Collection continues to be inspired by South East Asian culture, realized through the designs featured in both womenswear and menswear.
The collection offers a diverse palette that plays with contrast, particularly lightness and darkness. Nature also remains a prominent motif,
defined by the use of pure, vertical lines. The colours embrace the warmth that comes from the rich landscape,
and then spontaneously take inspiration from the city, through the geometric patterns that feature throughout the collection.
Created in the finest silk; the revered material which Jim Thompson is famed for remains at the forefront. Silk is a vital part of our heritage and whether woven, printed, or embroidered, our designs are naturally flawless,
crafted to perfection by our weavers.
Kimonos and silk pajamas stand out in this dynamic womenswear range, paired alongside cropped tops, fisherman pants, kaftans, the trench, box blazers, wide leg pants, shorts, evening gowns and classic mini dresses. This season, pattern and colour take centre stage, while maintaining the delicate handcrafted quality of the hand-spun silk.
Highlights in menswear include:
the trench coat, silk blazers, a selection of printed shirts (inspired by the tropical landscape and traditional Thai tattoo designs), embroidered kimonos, and pajama pants. The SS18 menswear collection returns to the true essence of nature. The style has been designed with the traveling gentleman in mind, but can also be styled for all lifestyles, suitable for both casual or business looks. This new men’s range is unique, crafted from passion and elegant, thanks to the luxurious texture of the sumptuously soft silk.
Our new accessories have been designed to inspire an exotic ‘resort’ feel and a glamorous attitude.
Our silk bags have been updated with a stylish design and are the perfect choice for wearing both at the beach and for lunch with friends in the city during summer.
The Rooftop family has been extended to include a selection of embroidered designs, created using a rich brocade. Taking inspiration from Thai architecture and the beautiful landscape of South East Asia, the Rooftop plays with both leather and silk materials.
Also discover the signature Grajaat where, designed to sit alongside the classic range, strips of leather have been expertly welded together to
create a contemporary striped design. A new range of decorative shoulder straps have also been developed, as well as colourful embroidered options, adding a playful aspect to this season’s accessories.
In menswear, the latest bags are ideal for a diverse range of uses from the stylish everyday to the exciting weekend trip. A new range has been developed in kangaroo leather, as well as our Boston and Tote shape bags, offered in a sumptuous fabric blend.
The Spring/Summer 2018 Collection is a dynamic collection that draws inspiration from a complex variety of themes relating to nature, the Asian landscape, and the city. Featuring a diverse colour range and an abundance of prints, the collection is style focused, reflecting the trends and the spirit of a bustling capital city.
