Sweet Heat

One of the cooler aspects of being in fashion and then being granted the opportunity to travel is becoming connected to designers in the locations we visit. Within days of arriving in beautiful Phuket – I was introduced to KEM issara, a young label based out of Bangkok who’s designer has worked behind the likes of Chloe, DVF, Jasmine Di Milo and Roksanda Illincic. I love so much this sexy two piece – more feminine and elegant than my usual attire but as you can tell from these pics, I am repping the female form beneath all my baggy tomboy clothing! So lovely to have something special to wear to nice events – I always get stuck when I’m invited to cocktail events for brands… ‘Can I wear jeans to this one?’ Urghhh…. no Zanita.
