“So far, from time that will not return So far, from where I used to be So far, from being away from home. - - So Far - - Written by H.R.H Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, 2018 Imagine for a moment, in the far reaches of this universe, there is an undiscovered planet where the highest stage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has been achieved while still maintaining a rich diversity of nature.  Though every living thing looks different and unfamiliar as a result of alien metamorphosis and mutations, all fauna and flora live in unison, happily ever after. This planet is called ‘NARAVANNA’ which was brought to the attention of HRH Princess Sirivannavari as the inspiration of SIRIVANNAVARI Spring/Summer 2019 collection, named ‘Abode of Metamorphosis’, capturing ultra-feminine silhouettes, exquisite embroidery and the Maison’s signature graphic prints, created by Her Royal Highness. H.R.H. Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, SIRIVANNAVARI Creative Director said, ‘It is all about the journey to NARAVANNA, the undiscovered world in this universe where all lives coexist in peace.  Its creatures, especially the mutants, inspired me for this latest collection, featuring graphics inspired by the AI’s mainboard, African-influenced craftsmanship and space-age details. ‘The silhouettes and structures of this season are quite varied and complicated, from deconstructed looks to asymmetrical gowns.  In addition, I added some details and techniques to create new dimensions such as quilted pattern, pleating technique from Gérard Lognon’s workshop in Paris and Maasai Mara - inspired embroidery produced in our own Maison’s workshop,’ said H.R.H. Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. SIRIVANNAVARI and S’HOMME Spring/Summer 2019 women collection features 67 looks (59 of womenswear and eight of menswear). The show commences with a parka look, which consists of a bolero Lurex tweed jacket paired with a dress of the same fabric, a cut-out midriff dress with the fluid silk chiffon skirt in the signature print, a cocktail peplum dress with the metallic quilt detail echoing the space-age theme.  For an ultra feminine look, the collection also includes a zebra-sequinned tulle blouse with hand-stitched feather details and a white corset dress with double layering of fringes: burgundy silk fringe and African beads fringe. In addition, the princess established SIRIVANNAVARI Atelier and Academy, the in-house workshop of couture embroidery.  Thus, the spotlight also shines on the magnificent embroidery which can be seen from the feather appliqué blouse, the crystal and pearl encrusted gown to the African beads embroidery details. As anticipated, graphic prints, one of the brand’s DNA, remains a highlight. The Princess has created prints this season by visually translating her imagination, including those details signifying NARAVANNA, such as mutants, alien creatures, AI’s mainboard, and gearwheels.  The prints are incorporated throughout the collection, from ready to wear, leather goods, shoes and scarves (120 cm x 120 cm and the mini-rectangular size used for handbag handles). The spotlight shines on the Bijoux Collection, with both Fine jewellery and Fashion jewellery falling under the same inspiration.  The Fine jewellery collection – featuring the Maison’s emblem ‘S’ and ‘Peacock’-  offers rings, earrings and necklace in 18 karat rose gold adorned with mother of pearl, pearl,
