BOOKWALL

This week we are having a closer look at the Dizon Inc. office library. The wall is full of shelves, stacked with books and magazines about art, fashion and design. They are the result of many fieldtrips to museums or design fairs and are a source of inspiration when at work. It is our creative hub during our research and concept development process when producing shows and events. Below you will find some of our favorite books.

THAKOON X LAURIE SIMMONS: ROSELAND

TNXLS 8 TNXLS 14

Thakoon Collaborated with Laurie Simmons to create a unique print for his Spring 2009 collection. The project had been in development for a few years before it actually hit the runway. Back in 2006 Thakoon Panichgul was at an auction and fell in love with Laurie Simmons and her work. Following this encounter Laurie Simmons was invited for his next runway show. As a thank you for attending his show, Thakoon sent her a bouquet of roses. These roses became the starting point for the textile design Laurie Simmons created for Thakoon’s Spring 2009 runway collection.
