Coming Thursday: Thakoon collection at Kohl’s
American designer Thakoon Panichgul describes his new limited-edition collection for Kohl’s as feminine, spirited and tomboy with a British spin.
Thakoon for DesigNation lands in Kohl’s stores Thursday. The line includes a pinstripe shirt with a floral pocket, layering pieces, knitwear combined with shirting, floral dresses and T-shirts with London iconology. Prices start at $36 for a scarf and climb to $150 and $175 for coats.
The designer said he loves working with florals and plaids and mixing a feminine aesthetic with tomboy influences. London seems to exemplify that mix and was Panichgul’s inspiration.
Panichgul has been designing for a decade and the collaboration with Kohl’s allowed him to reach a larger audience. He said he wanted to show how easy it is to dress fashionable and still be comfortable.
Other DesigNation designers include Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam, Catherine Malandrino, Peter Som, Elie Tahari and Milly by Michelle Smith.
DesigNation was created in 2012 to offer high-end designs at more moderate prices. Each collection is influenced by a travel destination.
