collection images: thakoon, resort
by Jeremy Danté
prints ran wild for the 2012 thakoon resort collection as contrasts of yellow were seen & darker toned designs were revealed near the collections end. i will say that i didn’t expect this direction from thakoon, given his design history & what seemed like a love for minimalism. while the resort collection seen here still adhere’s to basic princples of minimalism, the use of pattern & color bring out a different feel. im not entirely impressed with the set & feel that more complimentary tones could’ve elevated the collections appeal much more. modest cuts & school girl style direction are seen as one shot of red added an air of vibrance. i hope that this direction is dead & gone come show season. not one thakoon’s best, im afraid.
