Many designers have had India and Bollywood on their minds over the past few seasons (Chanel Pre-Fall 2012, Naeem Khan FW 2012), but none have translated print and design quite as loudly as Thakoon.
For his SS 2012 collection (now available in stores), bright tangerines and blues were covered in paisley prints and met with gold accents. While Karl Lagerfeld’s questionable British Raj-inspired collection was more muted and focused on textures, fabrics and jewelry, Thakoon went the opposite route with bright, bright colours.
Prices range from $660 for trousers to $925 for the jumpsuit, and are available at ssense.com.
If bright prints aren’t your thing, head to Sephora or Nordstroms for the limited edition, Bollywood-inspired Thakoon for NARS nail lacquer collection. Each colour mimics the what you see in the collection, from brilliant yellow to turquoise. Our favourite is Lal Mirchi.
