Some business news out of Thakoon Panichgul’s resort collection: Going forward, his contemporary collection, Thakoon Addition, will be folded into the main line, which will take on the breadth of price point and aesthetic of both lines. “It was going in that direction,” said Panichgul. “In the beginning it was part of Thakoon and everyone wanted it on the contemporary floor because the price was good, but we ended up doing the same things in both collections sometimes, so it felt repetitive.”
To his point, the resort lineup was one cohesive idea, incorporating the cotton shirting, denim and Baja ideas that came from Addition with the more specialty statement pieces — a devoré bodysuit and matching maxiskirt — of the main line without a hitch. Done in mostly white and black with a plethora of eyelet and a blush of color via iris prints, the clothes were crisp and summery with nice novelty details.
