Thakoon SS12
Mix a little bit of “The Devil Wears Prada” with a whole lot of “Wild Wild West“, sprinkles of Bollywood, a dash of technicolour, and you get the perfect Spring/Summer 2012 Thakoontini.

The excellent oddball Western aesthetic had nothing “hick” about it. With metallic finishes, cornflower blues, and Indian motifs, Thakoon Panichgul has created a stylist‘s multi-tiered dream. After his Fall/Winter 2011 collection mixed Versailles rococo with Kenya’s Masai tribe, the Thai designer seems to have found his niche in cross-cultural expression. The best thing about this creative continuity is that he has pulled off something wild without forgetting the “special little dresses” that brought his talent to light. It was a fabulously fearless and engaging showing. View Post
