Thakoon’s Gutsy Girl

You know that girl from art school with the edgy haircut and effortless style? Thakoon Panichgul put her in a dress and sent her down the runway. The looks shown in his fall/winter 2013 collection blend femininity—think flouncy silhouettes and dainty dandelions—with daring insouciance, seen in sheer checkered panels and belted fur shawls in offbeat colors. His prints were at once futuristic and floral, mixed among exotic textures like goatskin, pony, neoprene and jacquard. And the hair? Well, let’s just say it’s best left to the pretty art student.
