“Winter longing for summer” was the approach Thakoon Panichgul took for fall. He was rereading “Dandelion Wine” by Ray Bradbury and wanted to capture the essence of summer through colors and prints on sturdy materials. It was a thoughtful, whimsical continuation of what Panichgul did for spring, romantic in its use of dusty blue and pink, as well as dandelion patterns and embroidered dragonfly motifs, without ever coming off as precious. Panichgul works in classic wearability laced with special details. In this case, shirtdresses were spliced with vertical sheer lace inserts and a navy quilted peplum top had a single dragonfly embroidered on the chest. There was an intellectual prettiness to the lineup, a good portion of which was fur, shown in faded pastels and a great mini cheetah print. Cut into long, wrap collars, the furs brought quirky polish to this soft, summer fantasy.
