Thakoon Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2012
Thakoon Panichgul went multiculti again for spring. This time around, it was an ordinairy bandanna that stimulated his fantasy. When he studied its pattern, the paisleys led him to India. The cross-cultural exchange produced a super-vibrant collection of searing turquoise, saffron, orange, and gold, in silhouettes that ranged from Western shirts to shirts and dresses embroidered at the neckline. The metallic trim on saris provided a recurring motif.
Golden bands encircled the hem of a mini, the legs of khakis and lightweight denim jeans, and intervals on a long trapeze dress. Topping everything off were two-tone cowboy hats and blue sprayed hairdo’s.
