Bangkok Cover £14

Sodium Collective is all about celebrating the independents, the underdogs, and the outsiders. We’re all about the intangible allure of contrasting cultures, and discovering all of the world’s beautiful juxtapositions. 

For the debut issue of Sodium Magazine we explore the cultural rendezvous of east and west. We take you on a journey through Bangkok’s bustling side streets and into the grandeur of its golden palace — through the bold fashion of its street style stars. We create a glittering neon-lit vision of Chinatown; and we can assure you, it’s definitely not what you are expecting. In this editorial, the imagined silhouettes from Wong Kar Wai’s aesthetic are transformed into punchy and dynamic ensembles — featuring the work of some of Thailand’s best up and coming designers. 


London Cover £14

In a series of stunning black and white portraits, we also meet Dakota Blue Richards, a rare breed of celebrity, and one of London’s most genuinely charming actresses. These portraits reveal a beautiful yet intriguing side to the “Lyra Belacqua” we first met over a decade ago in The Golden Compass.

We find art in the layers of aromas found in Chinatown’s market stalls, the endlessly rich colours and textures of Bangkok’s traditional dress, and also the unfiltered creativity of London’s young design talent; and the gritty appeal of punk style amidst Portobello Road’s pastel coloured Victorian Terraced houses. The world is filled with so many beautiful contrasts — here at Sodium Collective, we’re all about discovering them.
