Need Thakoon Panichgul apparel at a discount? This is the guide for some of the best alternatives, anywhere online. I've decided to list some websites that seem to consistently have the lowest prices. Below are the websites that I recommend.
A favorite of fashion critics and celebrities, up-and-coming designer T. Panichgul was born in Thailand but raised in Omaha in the United States. At the age of twenty-nine, he unveiled his debut collection, womenswear with whimsy and wit. His designs display an Asian influence along with intricate detail and ethereal fabrics, such as organza and taffeta.
Michelle Obama wore one of his designs at a televised speech by her husband, the President. Among his celebrity clients are Demi Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker and Natalie Portman.
Panichgul collections can be found at Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman and Jeffrey New York.
What I find to be somewhat humourous and clever about his website is his fascination with his own first name. He seems to want to insert his first name and any possible opportunity "World of...", "....Addition Spring 2014", etc., I am sure that there is some research that proves that if you say a word (or name?) so many times, it will imprint on someone's brain. Given how unique his name is (at least in this country), it sounds like smart marketing. I also like the "Behind the Scenes" link. Interesting, but not always flattering. It is as if he has created a reality show for his website. The photography, though, is excellent.
FROM THE BLOGS:
Sometimes the level of analysis on a blog can vary in quality or at least in its ability to compel. I thought the Feb. 2014 comments in Fashionista about this label were particularly insightful. The author seems to think that this designer is in a "blue period". I guess I never stopped and wondered if a likely multi-millionaire fashion designer ever gets depressed, but it's not beyond the realm of imagination that someone blessed with an uncommon level of creativity would express themselves with what they perceive to be their art. I don't know that I necessarily agree that this designer is in his "blue period", but I will concede that his apparel does not say take me out dancing.
