Bibs of ornate lace were sewn onto short dresses and the whole thing was topped with a South American style cowboy hat. The hats were crafted from cotton and covered the spectrum in colors ranging from pink to blue and back again.
As for the clothing Thakoon made short dresses, pants and skirts with waxed cotton stripes, and ornate printed cropped pants, vests, short dresses and skirts. The style appeared fun to wear and yet quite dressy at the same time.
In terms of hitting the mark from a trends perspective he was on point with his use of mesh and sheer sashes, as well as his take on royalty. Many of the pieces will have an imperial feel in stores when taken away from their counterparts that they were styled with on the runway.
One look in particular has a model (Erjona Ala) with pink hair wearing a trench with thick detailing on one sleeve, one side of the chest, the collar, and on the shoulder. This was over top a gold and brown metallic full length skirt which was then paired with sandals. Just from looking at this piece you can tell where Thakoon’s vision was headed but these pieces on their own in a store will be show stoppers and will be taken home by many adoring fans.
