This season marks the 10th anniversary of Thakoon Panichgul on the runway, and with an inviting Spring/Summer 2015 collection Thakoon proves how far he’s come in a decade. With easeful, oversized shapes and cozy layers, he manages to crossbreed the fluid elegance of boudoir dressing with his patented eccentric style.

Printed dresses are tied off with low-slung ribbon belting and ivory crêpe mini dresses are paired with silk lounging jackets, while sleeveless silk robes and pajama trousers round out the softer side of this collection. Next, he transitions into comfortable separates in clashing patterns, which are ideal for work, travel, and leisure. Knitwear looks with tufts of fringe follow, before Thakoon decides to touch down in monochrome territory. Using sheer polka-dot fabric in draped layers and braiding lengths of fabric into the front of his dresses, Thakoon achieves a new way of energizing classic black-and-white combinations. The breezy nature of this collection lends it a beachy, outdoor vibe that maintains a surprisingly high level of sophistication. It appears that in the past ten years, Thakoon has learned one of fashion’s most important lessons: when form and function work together, success follows.
