Thakoon is back after sitting out a season, with buzzy investors and a direct-to-retail business model. Meaning many of the printed separates, chunky layered knights, tartan skirts and smart trousers he showed on the runway are already for sale on his e-commerce site or at his newly-minted Wooster Street store. Going forward, he’ll focus on wearable pieces for day, with classic Thakoon elements like shirting and denim, but still plans to design one-offs for his friends on the red carpet, including Priyanka Chopra, who sat front row. “They’re effortless but graceful and feminine at the same time,” said Chopra of the designs. “You don’t feel like you need to be always uptight in his outfits, and my style has to be comfortable.”
