Despite giving it up for autumn winter 2010 in favour of something a little tougher, Thakoon is known as the resident romantic - and he embraced it again wholeheartedly for spring summer '11.
Vanilla georgette trapeze dresses, apricot silk millefeuille slips... even the names left you longing for something sweet. Pyjama stripe silk dresses and Oxford shirts were fastened with hook and eyes and worn loose over organza underwear for a dreamy bedtime feel. Silk kaftans had a feather and paisley print, trapeze dresses multi-layers of chiffon.
But somehow twee was the last thing it could have been compared to. Maybe it was the silver and blue python sequin dresses or the snake prints but Thakoon provided a brilliant balance between modern and ethereal. Forget khaki trousers and jersey tees, this is how you want to look in East Hampton next summer.More
