More street style at Bangkok’s Central World

If you follow my blog, you know that I’ve  spent the last few Friday afternoons at Central World Shopping Center.  I like to schedule business meetings in the various coffee shops located there.  In addition to being a comfortable venue for meetings, Central World is also home to free indie concerts on Friday.   As a result, there is always a crowd of tweens roaming around.  When you toss in a handicrafts market in front of the massive mall, well, that spells an opportunity to get out your camera and fire away.

Street fashions in Bangkok at Central World shopping center

Street fashion has always thrived in Bangkok.  The confluence of European design with modern Thai style has led to some dynamic and always interesting style and color combinations.  There is a large degree of confidence in the way younger Thais assemble their wardrobes.  Also take a look at my other recent postings from Central World for more examples.

There are some influences from Japan and perhaps Hong Kong, though these cities tend to be of  lesser importance and somewhat niche in their appearance.  If you want to see street fashions in Bangkok, spend some time around Siam Square, and other nearby shopping areas such as MBK, Siam Paragon and Discovery and Central World. These shopping destinations are all within one kilometer of one another.

Japan is one of the most interesting places to visit and especially if you’re interested in photography.  From cultural and historical sights like Buddhist and Shinto temples to an active fashion industry, there’s enough variety to keep any photographer happy.  And Tokyo style is very dynamic, a little over the top and definitely interesting.  The fashion shown in these photos are very typical for young woman.  Layered with lots and accessories and definitely a fondness for boots, all styles.  And in a two block radius, you can many different styles.

These photos were taken during my last trip to Tokyo in late October.  In fact, I spent only an hour at this location near Shinjuku station and took upwards of 150 photos.  Lots to see and shoot.

Hope you like what you see!

Just some more photos of Singapore chilling out in a variety of styles.  Everything from babydoll tops to quasi-goth to just plain interesting.  Thank the heavens for individual tastes.

Obviously this couple is having a good time about something.  Great smile, relaxed posture.  And a sweater on a 35 C day.

This couple is a little out there for Singapore.  Not only is the girl looking pretty rad with fishnets, she also has tattoos everywhere.  Nice look.  Her boyfriend tops off his look with a snap brim fedora.

These friends have an interesting look from babydoll blouses to double-placket shorts.  But their sandals are all the same.  What’s that about?
