Thakoon Addition Pre Fall 2012

The brainchild of Thailand-born designer Thakoon Panichgul, Thakoon Addition is an outlet for the designer to playfully experiment with new trends and reinvent old favorites. All of the line?s pieces carry the same modern aesthetic as the higher-priced Thakoon, but have a more youthful, casual flair.

The brainchild of Thailand-born designer Thakoon Panichgul, Thakoon Addition is an outlet for the designer to playfully experiment with new trends and reinvent old favorites.  All of the line?s pieces carry the same modern aesthetic as the higher-priced Thakoon, but have a more youthful, casual flair.

Thakoon Addition?s pre-fall collection is a gentle shift from the breezy looks of summer to the more structured pieces of fall, incorporating a few dainty details into traditionally tough silhouettes.  Standouts include an olive parka dotted with a femme pink floral print and a silk shift composed of two complimentary camo prints.  The line?s oversize knits are an on-trend alternative to drab workwear, tailored enough to command attention yet trendy enough for a casual weekend brunch.  We can?t wait to pair the line?s olive-and-black cotton vest dress with leather booties and a neon crossbody (sans tights) while weather permits.  Characterized as ?flirty, cheeky military? by the designer himself, it?s a welcome addition to the blacks, browns, and navys that dominate the racks come fall.

These pieces are the ultimate in getaway gear; their cool-girl, urban vibe meshes with the high style of any fashion capital.  Throw on the line?s geo-printed wrap sweater and indulge in the sights of old Hong Kong at The Parlour at Hullet House.  Small plates of dim sum and unlimited flutes of Veuve Clicquot only sweeten the prime views.  Pair the collection?s red-and-pink floral printed blazer with gladiators and skinnies for a day at the contemporary Luhring Augustine gallery in NYC.  Afterwards, head to Chelsea Market must Amy?s Bread for a bite of their decadent Coconut Dream bars.  Team the brand?s elegant blue, gray, and white printed jumpsuit with strappy stilettos for dinner at the bustling Bebel?s Ristorante in Milan.  You?ll instantly feel like a chic local alongside the spot?s young, fashion-forward clientele.
