Thai-born Thakoon Panichgul launched his debut womenswear line, a small presentation of feminine classics, in 2004. He draws reference from his Asian heritage his love of intricate, ethereal detailing. Thakoon describes his designing style as ‘forward-looking [yet] respectful of the past’ and it is this play on contrasts that makes him the darling of the New York fashion scene. His elegant and yet innovative designs were famously worn by Michelle Obama on the evening that Barack Obama was accepted as President. This Fall expect classic patterns, playful finishes, luxe fabrics and soft colour palettes from Thakoon.
