This is very messy to me, like several ideas got mixed, the ones that shouldn't!

I really, really like the cuts and silhouettes. but I am not feeling the prints. If there were more solids and/or a different, perhaps more restrained prints, this would have been a much better collection.

I'm trying really hard to get this, and maybe I will later, but right now it just seems bad.

This is just tragic, I mean even the hats don't look good.

Awful, but at least it was more interesting than most of NYFW.

I like the mix and match of different patterns, and there are some very interesting dresses, but some pieces are way too.. shiny. The cowboy hat is something I could hold on to though. I can already picture it everywhere next spring!

It looks ugly, but I like a few pieces. Too many motives in the one collection, plus not very good styling.

Granny-chic cowgirls go on a spiritual pilgrimage to India (much like John, Paul, George and Ringo circa 1967). I hope Thakoon took the prudent step of sending out acid tabs with the invitations. This must surely look better under the influence of hallucinogens. Or something.

as some others have noted, I don't think it's that bad either. there are several pieces that are good, and they salvage the collection. so it's not a total wash

the styling is so bad (i hate those hats) that i was trying at first to salvage my image of the collection by scrolling down and obscuring the models' heads so i wouldn't be distracted...

but even then, the few good bits were overwhelmed by terrible things that they were paired with.

some of the prints aren't bad and i saw a few things i would actually wear, but this presentation is just an assault on the eyes

After watching the video, I like this collection better, particularly the East Indian stuff at the end and some of the separates. I will concede that I even like some of the printed looks that I criticized in a previous post, but after a while there are so many different ones and it is just too much. It is not lacking in good ideas, but there are too many of them both on the design and styling front that it it becomes an assault on the senses.
