Fall 2012: Thakoon

14 Feb

Thakoon really pulled it back together for me this season. Last season with his funky hybrid cultural inspirations was fun but it wasn’t memorable — this here is memorable. A beautiful collection. Inspired by an installation by Ed and Nancy Kienholz that works with the red light district in Amsterdam titled The Hoerengracht, Thakoon worked this collection with a shades of red and black color palette that popped and completely engaged the audience. The silhouettes were wildly unusual here. Thakoon really worked with the concept of a collar  and open v neck, a look I don’t often like but think he pulled off in an extraordinary way here. There was definitely an erotic quality to this collection but it wasn’t overdone or underdone — it hit just the right measure for me. It was interesting that the collection never hit a high note at the end, just kind of simmered out…It was nice although there is that feeling as you approach the end of a collection where you anticipate a finale. That didn’t come here but the whole collection was a fresh breathe of life so it was not completely necessary.  Also, it goes without saying that the peacock colored red peacoat was to die for. LITERALLY amazing.
