Runway Report: Thakoon Spring/Summer 2016 RTW

Thakoon SS16 RTW
For Spring/Summer 2016 RTW Thakoon Panichgul created what he called "New Bohemia." With a front row filled with women known for their eclectic tastes (Jessica Alba, Christina Ricci, & Bella Heathcote to name a few) there was a sense of that "New Bohemia" from the start. Tye-dyed, sun bleached denim, and 90s grunge were all part of where this idea of "New Bohemia" is going. I gotta say that breaking this collection down piece by piece it was an amazing collection and I can see everyone from the everyday woman grocery shopping to celebrities on the red carpet wearing this collection. Where a lot of designers have taken the 90s grunge reference and over styled many of their looks to feature so many pieces you don't know what to look at first, Thakoon stripped it down and made each look very light and airy. Not something you normally think of when referencing grunge. The speckled tie-dye long sleeve sheer chiffon midi gown with a cutout knot detail at the bodice and an open back was my favorite look in the collection. I get the full embodiment of the idea of "New Bohemia" with this look.
