Thakoon Fall 2009 Ready-to-WearThakoon Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

As soon as the first model walked the runway wearing a grey A-line coat with grey leather gloves it was clear that Thakoon's fall winter collection would be an ultra feminine one.  

Overall the collection was very polished featuring modernized versions of lady-like classics in eye catching shades.  The classic fur coat and Russian style  fur hat came in shockingly bright primary colors.  A Park Avenue style coat was turned on its head by its neon yellow color and matching yellow fur trim.  A simple sheer black dress was brought to life by a red and green fur cape.  Some of the best looks featured fur coats with an exposed zipper and 3/4 length sleeves that highlighted an array of elegant long leather gloves.  These gloves added a sense of nostalgia for the times in which a women would not go out in public without this vital accessory.  The collection also featured a few stand out dresses such as an asymmetric beautifully textured empire waist gown and an asymmetrical black sequined mini dress with an exaggerated bow detail on the shoulder.  
Unfortunately, simplicity seemed to breed banality in this collection.  A few of the looks such as a sapphire blue silk dress felt trite and other oversimplified looks looked like they could have came right off the racks of Banana Republic.  However these isolated pieces were not enough to bring down the overall beauty of this line.   
This collection is a very wearable one that I predict will do well in stores.  Who wouldn't want a chic neon colored fur hat to brighten up a drab winter day?
