I couldnt stand having something that outraged me so much as the first thing on my blog, so I’m posting some pretty pictures of nice things. This is a selection of garments from Thakoon’s collections from fall ’09 to spring ’10.
Moving to Omaha Nebraska at 13 years of age, Thakoon has been renowned for distinctive style, which is a blend of a number of different influences to create something feminine yet still chic. He shot to fame when Michelle Obama wore one of his creations when her husband, Barack Obama accepted the 2008 democratic nomination for president. I love the silhouettes colours he uses. His work is elegant yet has an underlying element of quirkiness.
