The dark side of Thakoon

  

Thakoon Panichgul is a relative newcomer to the fashion scene, and a hot catwalk ticket in NY who has made a name for himself with his twisted take on ladylike dresses and tailoring. He shot into the major league when Michelle Obama wore some of his print dresses on the campaign trail, and his new collection was all about pushing these classics into dangerous and dark territory. Plus, we spotted Sir Philip Green, aka Mr Topshop, on the front row. Is he shopping for designers to feature in his upcoming flagship NY store? Hmmm...

WHAT WE LOVED:

1) The mirror mosaic shoes.


2) The canary yellow coat and skinny black pants.


3) The jewel-coloured satin dresses (emerald, purple, red) with industrial looking zips.


4) The white tuxedo and sequin tulle Aladdin pants.


5) The multicoloured fur coats.
