Thakoon: Social Fabric
16 Февраля 2015
Merely looking at the set of coloured translucent panels that formed the backdrop to the Thakoon show gave an other-worldly feeling, although that is rarely a compliment when applied to clothes.
Yet this designer has an aesthetic that embraces subtle shades and textures. There was a richness to a rainbow collection of squares, looking like triple pockets on a jacket front and worn with a russet skirt of a different texture. “It’s ombré wool, cut up to make it graphic,” said the designer, referring to layers of handwork on a single outfit.
This made for complex but not complicated clothes, which Thakoon said were inspired by nineteenth-century dandies, including Oscar Wilde.
Fortunately, this tapestry of colour and texture did not seem historical or irrelevant — just one designer’s vision of a post-hippie modern world.
