Moonlight Dive’s special new ready-to-wear collection is a co-creation between Phannapast Taychamaythakool, the talented Thai illustrator who has collaborated with world-famous brands such as Gucci, and WONDERCAPETOWN, the small but unique brand well-known for its custom-made clothing featuring beautiful African-inspired prints.
Moonlight Dive draws inspiration from a young warrior who dives into her own shadow seeking out the depths of her soul. Phannapast explains: “There are many things we feel and think about. Some are good, some are bad, some are pleasant, some are unpleasant, some are acceptable, and some we may pretend not to see. All of these may impact our soul. The struggle to resist is like a battle with our monsters inside. We don’t have to consider winning. Just be bold enough to dive into the soul and explore our mind. Let’s see what our monster looks like.”
Phannapast calls these print patterns “Toile Kaiju.” The name is a combination of Chinoiserie, the graphic line from African print patterns, and the direction of Toile de Jouy patterns. The artist conveys frankness through the use of vivid colors.
WONDERCAPETOWN is in charge of the design and production process. The brand elected to use rotary screening on cotton fabrics. This screen technic fabric absorbs color and maintains long-lasting vividness. Each piece in this collection is inspired by the artist’s unique style. People will not only love Phannapast’s excellent works but her charming and unique style, too.
