To mark 25 years of iconic rail journeys this year, Belmond is launching Art & Fashion in Motion 2018 – a collaboration with local artists to bring guests closer to contemporary Asian culture. Art and Fashion meet travel as the nostalgic carriages receive a makeover by Thai artist, Somnuek (Parn) Klangnok; and celebrating the glamour of travel, Thai fashion designer, Vvon Sugunnasil introduces stylish new uniforms.
Rolling throughout South East Asia; Parn’s creations are inspired by the magical sensation of travelling in a fantasy world; inspired by Parn’s personal experience of travelling aboard Eastern & Oriental Express. The artwork depicts an ethereal world of Princes and Princesses, adorned with beautiful flowers, travelling in their joyful fantasy world for eternity – celebrating the Art of Living Well. Drawing inspiration from the Golden Age of Fashion, emerging fashion designer, Thattaworn Sugunnasil’s has created a new collection of uniforms featuring French tailoring.
