The new establishment
WANNASIRI
KONGMAN
AGE: 37
INDUSTRY: Fashion
EDUCATION: Bangkok University
NATIONALITY: Thai
The epitome of irreverence and new establishment are Kongman and Dorsey, the husband and wife team who cofounded BOYY in 2006. Their first collection was sold at Colette and worn by such fashion icons as Chloe Sevigny and Freja Breha. BOYY reached iconic status with the launch of the “Slash”, the it-bag that put them on the map, internationally. Today Kongman and Dorsey have a bags brand that appeals to a modern aesthetic, at once sleek, utilitarian, and functional, using the best leather sourced in Italy.
JESSE
DORSEY
AGE: 42
INDUSTRY: Fashion
EDUCATION: Berklee College of Music
NATIONALITY: Thai
Their brand, founded in New York and Bangkok, now commands a global presence with a BOYY flagship in Copenhagen and availability at the likes of Bergdorf Goodman in NYC and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and China. In Bangkok, BOYY is a must-visit destination shop, either at their Central Embassy flagship or smaller (yet very busy) concession in Central Chidlom. This is a couple with exquisite taste who turned their dream of making bags into an international lifestyle brand.
