Thakoon Addition
Thakoon Addition is the rebellious, down-to-earth and tomboyish sister line of Thakoon Panichgul’s main collection. Fascinated by decorative ideas that spin out of constructing clothes, for Panichgul, the subtleties make all the difference.

Prior to launching his own label, Panichgul spent four years as a writer and editor for Harper’s Bazaar. He eventually decided to try his hand at design, leading him to enrol at Parsons School of Design.

The persistent underlying sport theme of Thakoon Addition is toned down for Spring Summer 2014 to make way for more feminine approach. Even though relaxed shapes like the bomber and wide-legged jumpsuit remain, updated in printed plaid, Thakoon expertly frames and flatters the lines of the body. Africa proves a valuable resource also, inspiring the bold, mini dress print that foils the more western stripes perfectly.

The softness of this label is also explored further. Silk culottes that owe a debt to boxing shorts, sheer layers and printed poplins are balanced by more structure with mini shorts, bombers with 3-D embroidering on their plain backgrounds and puffy faille tuxedo skirts.
