Thakoon Brings Us Rich Textiles for Nouveau Dandies and Experimental Layering for Fall 2015
Fashion One invites you to take a look at the Thakoon runway collection at New York Fashion Week for the fall winter 2015 season.
Designer Thakoon Panichgul took the time to tell us all about his latest collection and the concept behind it. Rather than coming up with a storyline before selecting fabrics, this time Thakoon allowed the fabrics to dictate the themes and garments. There was a deep rich texture in many of the fabrics and he speaks about using all his senses to get a feeling for the textiles and their potential which in turn inspired the designer to think about 19th century paintings, Oscar Wilde and dandyism.
Most of the garments had a long and lean silhouette, at times almost stretched and skewed by turtlenecks, long ruffled sleeves and inspired use of layering. The designer also spoke about playing with men’s shirt tailoring and re-interpreting it, combining it with clean layered styling, putting a crop top over a long shirt worn with pants.
A dark palette of rich browns, coffee tones and black were broken up with some suitably deep reds and wines, as well as occasional welcome bursts of gemstone colors. Large arrowhead motifs echoed plunging v necklines including on a particularly stunning shimmering fluid black sequined gown.
