2009 June 10
(NEW YORK) Thakoon
Merely months after unleashing colored furs on his Fall 2009 runway, Thakoon Panichgul showed a resort collection dominated by dreamy pastels. This is one versatile designer, even beyond the tasteful, creamy palette. It was also about clever twists, perfectly toned textures, and welcome lightness. The designer focused on a customer whose schedule is dictated by the glamorous things in life--no wonder these 24 looks paid such a loyal tribute.
Tia Cibani masterfully treads the line between masculin and feminin, and for Resort 2010, she gave signature silhouettes of the 1920s a boyishness they haven't seen before. From a loose silk crepe gown with a jeweled neckline to a gold slouchy lame capelet, Cibani's collection kept her eclectic group of customers in mind. A winter white story, governed by staples like wide-leg cuffed trousers, underscored the house's understanding of truly seasonless piece.
