Meet The Only Current Male Editor-In-Chief Of A Vogue Publication

comments

Out of the 121 years that Vogue has been around, and the 20 editions that it operates around the world, there has only been two other male editors-in-chief (Michel de Brunhoff of French Vogue and Kazuhiro Saito for Vogue Nippon). 46-year-old Kullawit Laosuksri is the third for a Vogue title, and his first issue, which dropped last week, has already sold out across the country. Laosuksri was the editor-in-chief of Elle Thailand, is a flower shop owner, and also a jewelry designer for his own brand, Curios. He has a clear vision for integrating global fashion with local sensibilities, as is evident in his first cover: "We wanted a chada [the traditional tall coronet], which is internationally recognized 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."
