Featured prominently on the fourth floor of the Helix wing at EmQuartier in Bangkok, Another Story bills itself as a “story-telling concept store.” Which is a sophisticated way of saying it carries more than 160 international brands at a lower price point and pretension level than, say, Opening Ceremony. Look out for dinosaur cake stands by Belgian potters Serax, technicolor dream journals from Paris’ Papier Tigre, graphic tees by the Frenchies at StepArt, and handsome German pens from Kaweco. For more localized gift hunting, consider a gold-plated honeycomb necklace by MAD BKK, a pair of print-happy swim trunks by TIMO, or custom raw denim by Selvedgework. It’s all here, spread across an open floor complete with gallery, florist, and bakeshop.
