For Thakoon Panichgul, fashion design is more than sending off sketches to a factory of dressmakers. Instead, he spends an intense amount of time perfecting color, texture, fabric choices, and prints – the latter of which he painstakingly creates by hand and then digitizes for precise results. For Fall/Winter 2014, Thakoon’s signature florals were balanced by custom-made foulard prints, which were spliced together on multi-layered looks. His muse was a Seattle girl who relocated to New York City, which is why the collection is underwritten by subtle grunge style. His West-Coast-turned-East-Coast presentation cobbles together cozy knits, vibrant prints, and silk pants, and then covers them up with lampshade panels that encircle the arms, funnel-necked scarves, and oversized outerwear. Standout looks include a floral bomber jacket that ends in a surprising panel of puffy nylon, a coat featuring shelves of folded fabric that engulf the upper portion of the body, and a chic oversized blush suit. His punchy palette of bright blues, pinks, and purples was countered with luxe neutrals, which kept the bi-coastal conflict present in the collection. For Fall/Winter 2014, you don’t have to fight your homegrown style instincts, but you can find ways to assimilate into more cosmopolitan surroundings with the help of Thakoon.
