As I’m always on the lookout for artists doing what they do best, I was more than thrilled to read about Bangkok’s Designer “Best” Patipat Chaipukdee. With his label Dry Clean Only, he is hoping to combat the over saturation of vintage tees with his unique spin. After leaving fashion school a couple of years ahead of his graduation date, Chaipukdee started his label in 2010. Forced to think even further outside the box, due to the lack of financial backing, Chaipukdee had to get crafty with found and deadstock fabric and materials. This, however, gave his designs a uniqueness that is evident in all his designs. Traveling between Asia and the U.S. hunting for old T-shirts, he always chooses tees made in the ’80s and include wildlife motifs, Nike and Adidas logos, and the names of various sports teams. He mashes them together and gives each one a new silhouette, decorates them with Italian lace and fur, and fashions them with hand-beaded embroideries from India. After several years of building up his business, the designer was picked up by international stores including Colette in Paris and Crayon in Tokyo, and last year, Beyoncé was spotted wearing one of his creations to a show at Madison Square Garden. Super dope. Final Word: I would definitely wear these shirts, I mean if it’s good enough for Bey, it’s good enough for me.
