Actor and singer Bright Vachirawit’s status as one of the stars leading the Thai Fashion Wave might not be up for debate, but that doesn’t mean he’s resting on his laurels. Whether on stage or off duty, the Astrophile star continues to build his fashion momentum with unique style statements. His latest front-row appearance at Burberry was no different. For the occasion, Bright resurrected the grommet trend that last saw popularity in the 2010s.

Front Row Trendy

Over the years, Bright Vachirawit has built an elegant stylebook of front-row looks. Featuring classic Burberry staples such as trenchcoats and button-up shirts, his outfits have remained predominantly traditional and refinedly understated. At Burberry’s latest show, however, the Thai heartthrob traded the total black fits from previous seasons with a showstopping khaki set. 

The matching jacket and pants featured a slew of crystal embellishments, as well as small grommets and eyelets — small metal-edged holes that were popular during the indie sleaze era. These metallic details are commonly seen on belts or shoes, where they serve functionality. But as of recently, they’ve been spotted as adornments on bags, jackets and even matching sets. 

Grommets, along with studs, were essential elements of indie sleaze style during the 2000s and 2010s. The metallic pieces were go-to embellishments on leather skirts, sweatshirts and accessories. They were also mainstays on the runways of brands like Alexander McQueen, Raf Simmons and — yes, you guessed it — Burberry, nearly a decade ago. Now Bright is bringing this trend back with a modern flair. 

To complete his front-row get-up, Bright injected punk energy with a red check pattern sweater — a Burberry signature reinvented by Daniel Lee — and a pair of boots with buckle straps. Bright also departed from the well-coiffed gentlemanly hairstyles he sported in previous seasons. Instead, the actor opted for a modern wavy hair look aligned with current men’s beauty trends. 

A-Listers Only

Burberry’s most recent collection unveiling marks designer Daniel Lee’s third show at the helm of the British fashion house. The presentation was packed with A-listers and industry insiders sitting in the front row. Bright shared the spotlight with other Asian stars and Burberry ambassadors including football player Son Heung-min, South Korean actress Jun Ji-hyun and Chinese star Tang Wei.
