Michelle Obama in Thakoon


Thakoon A/W12

Within months of launching onto the scene in 2004 Thakoon became the darling ofNew York. Known for his elegance, delicate embroidery and Thai heritage, Thakoon has come a long way.

With an A-list fan base including Cameron Diaz, Demi Moore and Sienna Miller, no wonder Thakoon’s label has blossomed. What’s really propelled him into the big league however was the endorsement ofAmerica’s First Lady Michelle Obama. She wore his Radzimir kimono dress from the pre-spring 2009 collection as her husband delivered his Presidential nomination acceptance speech. What a coup!

My favourite Thakoon dress for next season has got to be this Hoerengracht-inspired (Amsterdam’s red light district) dress. Elegant tailoring, a red silk panel down the front and some confessional screen inspired detailing over the torso – strong and feminine!
