Best of NY Fall 09 // Thakoon Bird of Paradise Furs

Many critics missed the mark in describing Thakoon Panichgul's work this season. Cliché vocabulary does not expound on potentially interesting ideas; at Thakoon, where classic cocktail dresses and suits and fun capes hit the runway, "interesting" burst out into the open through his furs.
The fur carried trendy neon and acidic colors, so Thakoon mixed them into contrasting blends and gradients that stretched from the shoulders and down the sleeves and front. Richness is an understatement when involving jungle references. Plus the coats and capes plumped up the shoulders, and everyone's doing that. Kudos to this design hottie for frocking Akimbo as subtle, big-shouldered parrots!
