New York Fashion Week: Thakoon adds some sporty spice to his girly trademarks
The focus was on a new, more body-conscious silhouette. SCUBA-inspired dresses with draped, Fortuny-pleated floral and lava-print silk, combined with techno twill color-blocking, felt overly tricky. Same thing goes for shifts with armor-like front panels of silk jacquard (a bit sandwich board-like), and silk T-shirts and ninja pants that mixed a riot of prints to dizzying effect.
The best pieces were jackets -- one molded to the body in a cyberfloral and techno twill mix, and another in black twill covered in waves of silver chains.
Still, I left wanting more.
