For his fall collection, Thakoon Panichgul juxtaposed the luxury and opulence of the fashions of Versailles and the vibrancy and prints from the tribes of Africa. And what better local to show the collection than New York’s own palace, the Plaza Hotel?
From the gate, Panichgul’s royal blue and orange plaid puffer jackets, asymmetrical dress, and peplum skirt brought life to the ornate ballroom. There were red velvet booties fit for Louis XIV, and trains and ruffles that we could picture a modern Marie Antoinette in. The designer’s tribal influence was imagined in long printed vests, red and black striped cropped pants, and colorful chokers.
