Eastern & Oriental Express Uniforms
Celebrating the glamour of travel, Thai fashion designer, Von Sugunnasil, has introduced stylish new Eastern & Oriental Express uniforms.
Enjoying 25 years of iconic rail journeys this year, Eastern & Oriental Express announces new uniforms that embody the golden age of romantic rail travel; old world glamour with new cutting-edge designs and modern artwork.
Drawing inspiration from the Golden Age of Fashion, Thattaworn Sugunnasil has created a new collection of Eastern & Oriental Express uniforms featuring French tailoring, developed during his time in Paris.
Founder and Creative Director of Von Sugunnasil, Thattaword is the designer of choice for high fashionistas of Thailand.
Thattaword comments, “My ideas for the Eastern & Oriental Express uniforms are inspired by the actual travel experience, which is of a level beyond luxury; sensual onboard refinement and inspiring views along the way.”
The silhouettes frame a minimalist interpretation of classic Oriental style with sabai draping necklines, prominent buttons, and subtle adornments.
Individual uniforms are specifically designed for each area of the train; the Bar Manager is attired in elegant emerald silk whilst the Train Manager will wear a bespoke single-breasted charcoal suit. In the dining cars, waiters wear classic white shirts and black trouser ensembles with sharp lines for a contemporary twist. The train’s pianist, who is a legend aboard the rails, will wear stricking red velvet – all featuring classic tailoring that reflects the timeless luxury of rail travel.

Belmond Art & Fashion in Motion 2018
14 February 2018, Bangkok
Belmond launches Art & Fashion in Motion 2018, a collaboration with local artists to bring guests closer to contemporary Asian culture.
Art and Fashion meet travel as two of the nostalgic carriages receive an artist’s makeover by Thai artist, Somnuek (Parn) Klangnok. Whimsical drawings evoke a sense of fantasy.
Rolling throughout South East Asia, Parn’s creations are inspired by the mystical sensation of travelling in a fantasy world, blossoming from Parn’s personal experience of travelling aboard Eastern & Oriental Express.
Commenting on his work, Parn said, “Travelling with Eastern & Oriental Express was a magical experience. From beginning to end, I was pampered by gracious service and amazing food & drink. As dramatic landscapes and intriguing cultures lined the way, everything appeared in a different light of enchantment.” The new Eastern & Oriental Express uniforms contribute to this out-of-this-world experience.
The artwork depicts an ethereal world of princes & princesses, adorned with beautiful flowers, travelling in their joyful fantasy world for eternity – celebrating the Art of Living Well.
