 O Thongthai

Spring / Summer 16

sees O’ Thongthai explore Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The tragedy of lust, love, bitterness and despair. Finding beauty in unexpected places and the moments of light amidst the darkest of times is a recurring theme in O’ Thongthai’s work as paralleled romanticism and grief of the story’s narrative. Poison and opium become the center of visual hook throughout the collection represented through feminine flower coated in enamel and set with Swarovski crystals. Heavy snaking resin marbled chokers keeps a firm hold on the throat. While religious iconography and crosses are references to Baz Luhrmann’s contemporary interpretations of this masterpiece in peacock, navy, and natural pearls.
