American designer Thakoon Panichgul has a thing for the cult period piece, 'Dangerous Liaisons', and sartorially speaking, so do we. However (though our memory may be foggy), we don't remember Glenn Close or Michelle Pfeiffer sporting tribal feathers on top of their massive powdered wigs. By the looks of the Thakoon runway, maybe they should have. Thakoon's take on classic dressing allowed for a highly constructed silhouette, cinched at the waist and bursting with gathered peplums, but the clothes were anything but antiquated. Fresh, cool, and practically 'downtown', it's obvious why Panichgul is one of NY's young designers to watch.
