New York: Last year marked the tenth anniversary of Thankoon Panichgul’s eponymous label. A picture of Mia Farrow from an old issue of Permanent Food magazine was the visual inspiration behind the designer’s lineup for pre-fall. The overall message was “a bohemian quality with a moodiness” – as stated by the designer – where the label’s signature hybrids and American sportswear ideas were tweaked and reworked to make them commercially appealing. For instance, novelty knits were needle punched with graphic panels of lace and tweed materials on jackets and outerwear were frayed creating a convincing handloom appeal. There were many more standout pieces – ribbed knit pants came cropped and oversized, mosaic-inspired jacquards stood out on coats and dresses and heathered ribbed knits and crispy white shirts were wrapped around the neck while playing with asymmetry. The proposition was a rich and textural plethora of ‘boyish’ shapes with a delicate bohemian sensibility. – Diego Sanchez
