There are a few pieces that I'd wear anyday, hands down.
But over all this collection is confusing. It just look like a whole lot of different patterns thrown on random pieces of clothing. It doesn't even really look like a collection, just a bunch of outfits sent down the runway.
Only thing that made this a collection were those ugly and unnecessary hats and the pink/blue hair. Disappointing

When you see that coming down the street this spring there will be no mistake who designed that. So strange.

It's actually not THAT bad. At least it's a little interesting, but unfortunately the inspirations that were used here look absolutely diabolical together. I don't like the western trend, I think it's hideous and cheap.

i think some of the individual looks are really cute. but all together... it doesn't look like a collection. i have taken an extra strong dislike to look #15 and the entire last section in particular. oh and the hats.. the hats!! why?

Don't forget the vague Indian vibe with the powdered hair (just like the Hindu festival Holi), and some of the shear pieces that look like the top of a sari. It's certainly an interesting mix of inspirations. Overall I'm not keen on this collection, there are one or two pieces that I think are nice but the rest just doesn't work. It's a shame because normally I'm a fan of whatever Thakoon produces (but right now I'm just hoping we don't see Michelle Obama wear this collection that would be awful).

This collection was almost a little too sweet, it's like Barbie does Southwest or India or even both!. I loved all of the floral prints, the colors were so wonderful. However.... I'm not so sure about the metallic strips, they didn't work on the trousers but they were nice above the waist and in large scale on the bottom of skirts. Peplums,Peplums,Peplums.... when will they stop? I don't find them flattering for anybody. Overall this was a fun collection right down to the cotton candy hair. :p

I don't think the collection itself is that bad. But it's very hit or miss for me. Some of the looks are really cool but the styling does NOTHING for them. While the rest is utter crap and at least the styling makes it somewhat interesting.
Obviously I love the cotton candy hair and I love me some kitsch so I really dig the styling but I'm not sure Thakoon is the right designer to try this kind of overdone styling, his designs are not exciting and fun enough.
So basically, cute idea, a few nice looks but it just doesn't work.

While the collection as a whole is a bit too much and rather hurts my eye, I see some gorgeous individual pieces. I love the dresses in pictures no 2, 4, 7, 9. And I like some of the blouses. The color palette is lovely and I think if you take the individual pieces and tone them down they will be true hits. I'm quite excited over this!
