Luxe Resident

Zanita and I had the chance to shoot in one of Sri Panwa’s luxury residences… and we were pinching ourselves.

Sri Panwa’s luxury residences can only be described as next level. This particular one that Zanita and I had the glowing chance to shoot in had four bedrooms, three pools, mind-blowing ocean views and 1200 square metres of lush green privacy. How’s that for a dream home? We were pinching ourselves.

In shooting this editorial, we wanted to capture the grandeur of the place against a humidly relaxed lifestyle and easygoing outlook on a daily swan-about. This means your hair is always down or drying (you just got out of the pool, you see), you always have a drink in hand (preferencing fresh coconuts), and dewy skin is the face of the season – a flick of eyeliner or dramatic lipstick at most. I’d almost prefer this lounging luxury to any other expansive home and ballgown affair in other parts of the world – it’s somehow a little more grounded in enjoyment and appreciation of natural beauty, of which Phuket is certainly a master.

So on that dreamy note, have some styling references for your own luxurious fantasies:

I hope you’re enjoying our editorials so far! This one was certainly the most fun – running around a huge house with Vicki giggling at our posing for a manless camera on self-timer, just for a shot of the two of us!

Happy weekend, beauties.

We partnered with She’s Electric to make this trip happen. Check them out!
