This underlying thoughtful demeanor explains the attraction to Vee’s clothes. He is the kind of person that just does everything right: Designing easy-to-wear statement pieces with cuts representing modern comfort that embody a lavish feel. With a resumé that includes designing for American classics like Michael Kors and Derek Lam, Vee’s astonishing look is not a surprise.
“I want people to care about their
clothes — concerned about what
they’re wearing everyday.”
And this is why Mood of Living welcomes SVEE. One of our favorite selects is a classic knit sweater with contrasting perforated leather inserts—cool, classic, but with a touch of sportswear element. Vee’s cheerful personality and complete dedication to a forward-thinking vision makes him a designer to keep on your radar.
Mood of Living Q&A:
MoL: Where is your homeland?
V: Bangkok, Thailand
MoL: What is your current fashion objective?
V: To find a vision for women’s knitwear collection.
MoL: When did you know you wanted to be a designer?
V: When I first went to a flea market in Paris and found this beautiful black cape from the 1800s.
MoL: Where do you find inspiration?
V: Everywhere and all around me. From the places I visit, to the many shades and textures of my dog, Cleo’s, fur or my egg white omelet on a Sunday brunch.
MoL: If you could have a conversation with any living person, who would it be and why?
V: Sarah Burton (Creative Director at Alexander McQueen). I would like to know what encouraged her to design her beautiful clothes and what it was like to work with Alexander McQueen.
MoL: Any words of wisdom?
V: Never give up, but if you are tired, take a break.
