As part of our honeymoon in Thailand, my husband and I visited the famous, exotically elegant Jim Thompson flagship store. Mr. Thompson lived for a good part of his life in Asia, at which time he recognized the beauty of Thai silks and a textiles empire was born. Today, his stores, restaurants and fabrics reflect his fascinating life, which included international travel, espionage and even a mysterious disappearance at the end of his life. You can read more about him here.
I wish I had been blogging at the time we went to the store so I could have shared some personal pictures of the experience with you. However, I pulled together a few images to inspire you and give you a flavor of his style:
