Thakoon: Resort 2014

By  June 04, 2013

Designer: Thakoon Panichgul

Inspiration: Panichgul was inspired by pieces that played on the opposing elements of “natural and artificial” at once. Deconstructing the classic “crisp white shirt,” or in this case, the Cuban guayabera, he created styles with more going on, but that stayed true to the organic elements at the base of their inspiration.

Trends: gauzy overlays and sheer panels, multi-material layering, structured silhouettes with a softness, going-out outfits with sporty and casual elegance, floaty tunics and blouses over various styles of skirts and pinstripe fitted trousers, single button cocoon coats, crisp and minimalistic midi dresses.

Palette: white, ivory, smoky grey, periwinkle, navy, black, blush-beige.

Who Should Wear It: Women with strength, quiet confidence, and sophistication both in their demeanor and in the way they express themselves through fashion. Ladies who know how to dress-up and dress-down at the same time. Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, Gwyneth Paltrow.
