Pre-Fall 2012: Thakoon and Thakoon Addition


This is one of my favourite Pre-Fall 2012 collections thus far! I was a bit lukewarm towards Thakoon's last collection, but am in love with this one! The palette featured delicious pastels, and neutral grays, khakis, and creams, with cool-weather fabrics like blanket-printed wools and fuzzy Mongolian lamb, cutaway blazers, cable-knit sweaters, and slip-on leather loafers. Panichgul drew our focus to the waist this season, amping up the volume with full-skirted frocks, which were fun and flirty but not overtly so:

Thakoon Addition

Thakoon described this collection as "flirty, cheeky military", combining little dresses with swing coats and parkas. Pastel in this collection was found in camouflage prints (some abstracted from floral prints). Uniform details like oversize cargo pockets and sparrow tails gave feminine pieces like A-line skirts and cropped jackets a military touch. As with his main collection, Thakoon played with volume, though here he really let the billows fly. A maxi-length romper had legs so wide even his showroom model mistook it for a dress.
