THAKOON X TASAKI: PUNK ROCK PEARLS

TN X TASAKI 11

Suddenly pearls seem to be everywhere in fashion (fashionista), but not many people know that Thakoon has been designing incredible pearl jewelry with Tasaki since 2009 when he was appointed creative director.  Thakoon’s pearls are somehow punk rock yet incredibly elegant at the same time. So much so that girls who would never consider a string of pearls are wearing his unique pieces.

His latest collection “Pretty in Pearls”, is inspired by Thakoon’s dog Stevie, a Yorkshire Terrier and Chihuahua mix.

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.
