NYFW: Thakoon

By: Maddison Brown
It’s been said that the dragonfly symbolizes maturity, poise and change. We’re not sure whether this was kept in mind when Thakoon featured the dragonfly in many of his Fall 13 pieces, but these are the same words we would use to describe the line. Simplistic yet striking, the outfits were an array of modern elegance.

The dresses were cut with many hard angles, yet the textures and colours kept them soft. Colours included creams, lavender, pinks and blues. Belts were shown on many of the pieces as well, making the waistline a large focal point of the collection. Another way he did this was through peplum styles in his blazers, skirts and overcoats. Embellishments such as fur scarves tied at, of course, the waist, made these classic creations something we will be seeing on the best of the best in the streets of Manhattan.
