I don’t like birds, but the collection from Thakoon overcame my prejudice. I think it was the designer’s masterful variations that won me over. The collection started out with a group of stunning dresses, beautifully cut, each featuring a different print incorporating birds. This is gorgeous stuff, but it was the later pieces which made the collection memorable. The opening dresses are beautiful, but will probably only be seen on the concrete carpet of fashion bloggers and it-girls who populate the streets waiting to be photographed during fashion week. The latter dresses were of a decidedly more casual bent, cotton versus satin, daytime versus evening. The birds seemed to have disappeared, but they were slyly referenced in the cage-like skirt shapes. All in all, an entirely appealing group of clothes.
