Thakoon Spring 2014: Girls in Pearls

For Spring 2014, Thakoon Panichgul sent out an unabashedly girly collection. His models were dripping in pearls--they comprised the handles of long cross body bags and were loosely draped, flapper-style, around models' necks. (According to Style.com, the pearls are part of an ongoing partnership with Japanese jewelry company Tasaki.)

The pearls went well with the lingerie-inspired looks that came down the runway. It almost looked like Panichgul had rummaged through a decadent lingerie drawer--there were lacy slip dresses and flimsy silk camisoles and bits of lace or crystal chain embroidery scattered throughout. I especially liked the look of a simple oversized cotton blouse fancied up with a crystal chain. Small dainty details prettified and added interest to plainer, casual looks--a striped sweater and wide leg pants looked more feminine with a string of pearls flung across them. So when a red patent leather strapless bra hit the runway, looking more sex shop than lingerie shop, it threw us for a bit of a loop.
