Ben Viapiana's father was a tailor from Italy; it's no surprise that he's followed in his father's footsteps. His limited-edition denim is handmade in Bangkok, with a style that has its roots in the Bangkok skateboarding community.

Viapiana says that the Thai skateboarders are perfect muses, as their cutting edge fashion always seems to influence Bangkok fashion in some way.
