A Polish Color To End All Polish Colors

Summertime is all about the colors on your nails and, girl, have I got the color for you: Anardana, from the Thakoon for NARS collaboration. Gorgeous, right?  This color is professional enough for work, sexy enough for a night of dancing under the stars, and girly enough for a picnic in the park. But if…

Do Not Want: A Thousand Dollar T-Shirt

Sure, you could spend $990 on this T-shirt by Thakoon, BUT YOU’D BE AN IDIOT! Sorry, I don’t mean to yell, but this T-shirt isn’t pooping diamonds, so I can’t understand why it costs so much. Do you? [$990, Shopbop]…

Do Not Want: Thakoon Twisted Layered Leggings

Look, I know we’re always looking for new pantsventions (that’s pants inventions) to cover the lower halves of our bodies, but really, this is just not right. Thakoon is a bonafide genius when it comes to structured style, but we’ll definitely be skipping these “layered” leggings, which are just a $378 way to look like…

Dress Like Michelle Obama, For Way Less

It was only a matter of time before someone wanted to capitalize on the First Lady fashion effect, and when it comes to doing it accessibly, K-Mart has turned out to be that retailer. If your wardrobe aspirations include looking just like Mobama, head to K-Mart and pick up either a copy of her J.Crew…

Thakoon Spring 2010: MObama-Worthy?

Get First Lady Michelle Obama on your side (or in one of your dresses), and your business is guaranteed to boom. That’s what happened to some of MObama’s favorite labels, like Thakoon. So, is it just us, or does Thakoon’s spring 2010 presentation look like it’s playing pretty hard to attract Michelle and all her…

What, No One Wants To Dress Like Michelle Obama Today?

The Thakoon dress Michelle Obama wore on the final night of last year’s Democratic National Convention is on sale on Gilt Groupe today for $498 and, surprisingly, wasn’t the first item by the designer to sell out (it was still available at 12:45). Were customers afraid to buy it for fear that when they wear…

Crave: Thakoon For Target Shibori Woven Dress

We’re not completely sure why Target decided to put out a “resort” line of summery clothes in the middle of winter. Did they do it to torment those of us currently dealing with snow and ice, or something? Luckily, there’s at least one piece in the Thakoon collection that you can wear right now, whether…

Poll: Will You Brave The After-Christmas Crowds For Thakoon’s Target Collection?

Designer Thakoon Panchgul’s GO International Collection for Target hits stores Dec. 28, mere days after Christmas. The clothes are cute, if a bit summery, but are you going to be all shopped out and in no mood to fight angry women for a strappy dress in the middle of winter?

The Daily Squeeze: Thakoon For Target, Red Lips, And Strong Handshakes

Photos showing the Thakoon Go International for Target collection are out. For clothes that are coming out in December, they’re awfully summer-y. Yes, we know it’s a “resort” collection, but what Target shopper vacations in Brazil at this time of year? [Nylon]

Thakoon Goes From Prospective First Lady To Target

Before Michelle Obama appeared in a Thakoon dress at the Democratic National Convention, the designer had no idea she would be wearing one of his creations. “I saw her on TV and I couldn’t even look, I was so embarrassed from being excited,” Thakoon Panichgul said. And now we’re embarrassed for being so excited because…

Michelle Obama’s DNC Style FOUND!

Not that style and politics should mix, and we certainly don’t think a candidate or a candidate’s spouse should be criticized for lacking style, but Catherine and I have both been bowled over by Michelle Obama’s nose for fashion over the course of the campaign. And never more so as when we both came into…
