JBB* by Jirawat Bote Benchakarn opened the Asian New Generation Showcase to critical acclaim. The collection’s clean lines, vibrant hues and preppy outlook struck a chord with the audience. With the assortment of shorts taking centre stage, the collection boasted a summer feel that proved to be wearable even in our humid climate. It also seemed to draw inspirations from a very dapper geek; with the big framed glasses and usage of bow ties it was hard not to catch it. The collection also very suavely mashed sharp tailoring with rugged military camo prints; something that would usually be frowned upon.
The show ended with a standing ovation that leaded up to a very meek Jirawat Bote Benchakarn walking out with MTV VJ Utt and looking extremely proud of his collection.
