>> A palette just right for Valentine's Day dominated Thakoon Panichgul's Fall 2012 collection. In red, fuchsia, crimson, and purple, these were vibrant, punchy clothes in streamlined, easy silhouettes. However, Thakoon is known for his whimsy — and there was also plenty of that here. Shifts, full skirts, boat-neck tops, and coats were full of surprising details: paperbag waists, ruffled ruching, and lacquered fabrics, as well as leopard-print inserts and key-hole cutouts. "I was feeling something a bit more romantic," the designer explained of the collection.
