2. Aprilpoolday

Aprilpoolday is a famous Thai brand beloved by the local girls. They are credited with bringing the vintage 80s style back to Thailand and are popular among all ages.

A few of our fashion favorites include the body-slimming Terra and Kay that doesn’t for a second compromise lush prints or fun details, and the Myra and Ayu two-piece collections that feature elegant twist-front tops.

As the Army of Interns mature into a full-fledged fashion powerhouse, Bullet by AOI swimwear is more serious than ever about differentiated cuts, high concepts, and challenging the brand itself.

From the earlier velvet and two-tone classics to the recent nature patterns and Urban Motor suits (injected with shots of Ultra Violet), Bullet by AOI takes its influence from New York and takes a different path from the common laid-back, beach-day Thai fashion styles. Meet the Army during their latest interview.
