Thakoon Panichgul Not Pandering to the Economy

By

Thakoon Panichgul, one of Michelle Obama's favorite designers, on his new line, Thakoon Addition: "I didn’t conceive Thakoon Addition as something sales-friendly for the sucky economy. I’ve been thinking about doing this for at least a year. And my runway collections tend to be pretty accessible anyway. Now, maybe I’ll have a chance to experiment more, but at heart I like to make wearable clothes." [Style.com]
