a rose by any other name

Blog_thakoon2

Just in time for all the summer weddings on our calendars, Thakoon Addition has arrived here at shopbop. How is it different from the spring Thakoon runway collection? As designer Thakoon Panichgul puts it, “I see Thakoon Addition as a place to store ideas. In any given season, I’ve got ideas flying around that don’t fit what I’m planning for the runway, but belong somewhere.” Also a home for enduring customer favorites, the supplementary line brings us more of the refined yet wearable pieces Thakoon is known for.

The results of the months-long wait? A polished romper graced with a whimsical heart print, silk dresses (both mini and maxi) with Thakoon’s signature rosebuds and flattering silhouettes, a lightweight summer dress in on-trend mini floral, and no-fuss frocks with functional yet fashion-forward draped pockets. Luckily these gems weren’t abandoned on the cutting room floor or left to collections past: we wouldn’t want to miss out on one ounce of Thakoon brilliance.
