Unique ways to say ‘I love you’


When was the last time you wrote to someone -- a proper letter that is, not a text or an email? This Valentine’s Day, Another Story, the lifestyle store, invites you to leave the digital world behind and turn to the good old way of declaring your love.

Love letters are the archetype of true romance, and you can write them in style with cool stationery items available at the store. You can also give your significant other some writing tools that might just be the hint they need.

A special letter starts with special tools. Ystudio, a Taiwanese design brand known for minimalistic and simple design, has officially arrived in Thailand with its first pop-up store in Thailand at Another Story with the  “Weight of Words”, a collection of well-designed, minimalistic, yet extremely powerful items that will last for more than a lifetime.

Relive the glory of yesteryear a la Romeo & Juliet with the Brassing-Desk Fountain Pen, carefully crafted from solid brass, designed to remind us of the weight and substance that our words can carry. Better yet, the pen itself carries its very own story – the colour of brass changes with different users and various environments, giving each pen its unique feature. Or create unique art with the brass series which includes ballpoint pen, sketching pen, and adjustable pencil.

Paris-based jewellery brand Atelier Paulin presents accessories shaped out of precious metal wire to help you express your emotions with a unique and entirely handmade piece. The brand offers beautiful and meaningful presents that portray your emotions through heartfelt words crafted using colourful silk thread, silver or gold glitter and precious metal, such as argentium, gold-filled 14-karat wire, and 18-karat gold wire.

Various items include the magical four-letter word “LOVE” with your loved one’s name, and in turn, the recipient can carry this meaningful item with them on their finger, ears, neck or wrist. Simple but elegant, Atelier Paulin jewellery makes a meaningful present, a one-of-a-kind gift that you and your recipient will cherish forever.

Check out the first Ystudio and Atelier Paulin pop-up stores in Asia at Another Story, 4th floor, Helix Quartier, The EmQuartier through the end of February.
