Black & white combo: watch from the Timeless collection (165 $) with a jumpsuit of Dancing Riot
(Depending on which generation you belong too, this paragraph will sound either memorable or utterly crazy..)
I’m not the only one on team nostalgia. Alisa Kittipong and Tanachpak Warnnissorn, two Thai women I met here in Bangkok, share my analog love and in their case for watches specifically. In times of digital gadgets, they launched their own brand SIMPL: old school watches which stand out exactly because of their simplicity.
When I asked them what makes their brand unique, Alisa replied:
“We like to challenge the common notion of time and offer different perspectives. For our ‘One’ collection we were inspired by the 16th century way of reading time, based on the movement of the sun.”
Alisa and Tanachpak are two no-nonsense women, which is reflected in the minimalist signature style of SIMPL. I love to wear their watches as a classy statement piece, or combine it with some bracelets if I’m going more boho.
Minimalist and unisex are two key characeristics of SIMPL.
