Vogue's First Male Editor-in-Chief

Vogue Thailand

Vogue hires its first male editor-in-chief anywhere in the world, and he's heading up the Thai edition. Forty-six year old Kullawit Laosuksri, former EIC for Elle Thailand, is already a huge success for Vogue, with issues hitting newsstands and selling out immediately!

The new Vogue EIC was quoted in The Nation saying, "Vogue in each country has a very high standard, but one of the core principles is that it must reflect the women of each country. Paris Vogue is about Parisian chic, American Vogue is American style, British Vogue is punk and rebellious, and Italian and Japanese Vogue have their own styles too. For the Thai edition, we also want to present Thai women's cheerful attitude and lifestyle. For the first issue we wanted a chada [the traditional tall coronet], which is internationally recognised and has a sophisticated design. We searched the archives of the master of the craft, Chakrabhan Posayakrit, and then asked Phillip Treacy, a world-renowned maker of headdresses, to create a chada we could display on our cover."

We can't wait to see what he's got lined up for the next issue!
