Thakoon Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2012
Romantic and very feminine, in an almost cliche way – that’s what Thakoons fall collection reflected. An undercurrent of sly irony and subversive sexuality coursed through the collection, winking at bad taste along the way. A camel coatdress that looked plain and proper from the front had an exciting purple leopard-printed pony collar and a leather basket-weave panel in the back. Crinkled patent leather came in black and wild pink. Chubby sweaters were laced with Mongolian fur. And for the girl who doesn’t wear her heart on her sleeve, there was chic understatement too, such as a black halter — completely backless — worn with matching trousers.
