Kitsch never works for me, the collection looks uncomfortable as well.

Just like my bff said, 'If someone says that they love this collection, I might as well injure myself'.

Baroque / Rococo + Cowgirl motif.
Interesting.

I agree. Some of the pieces from this collection are cute and new, but others tend to be more of unwearable "show" pieces. I have mixed feeling about this collection.

As I thought.
It's a very bad version of Moschino which is already very bad.
For me, it's too cute because of the cuts lengths. It could have been
a nice one if designed and styled completely different while using
the same inspiration.

Well, this collection is confusing. Or confused.

I think he is trying to capture the zeitgeist here in the spirit of Prada and the recent Dior Couture.

the problem is with the styling and editing. get rid of the thrift shop pieces and the gems will shine.

Also, it needed more 3 dimension like some bags, jewels

it looks like charles anastase on a baroque balenciaga trip. too contrived. it's trying to maintain youth while pushing such a matronly mary mcfadden-like agenda at the same time. too much conflict. and it's terribly overwhelming. he really should have dialed it back a bit.

There are some great separates here. Overall, I'm perplexed as to whom Thakoon's customers are. Some looks are too matronly for women in the 20s, while others are too young for women in the 30s and 40s. Thakoon failed to edit his collection.

so disappointed, Thakoon usually excels in spring collections
he's usually so good about mixing great prints for spring but this one is a clear miss
