Thakoon Pre-Fall 2015

When I think of Thakoon Panichgul I think of his outerwear.  One time leaving a Back-to-school campaign I was shooting for Macy’s at Milk Studios, I ran into Sarah Jessica Parker on the lift.  I noticed her outfit far before I noticed it was her.  She had on a jacquard Thakoon coat, some modal capri sweat pants and a pair of Pedro Garcia shoe boots.  It was one of those fashion moments you observe on another woman that changes your perspective on the art of dressing.

Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2015

On a whim I purchased an Altuzarra for Target Dress this year.  Hey, I’m a budding entrepreneur on a budget but I still find ways to explore ready-to-wear designers.  The dress was poorly styled in the lookbook but on me it was stunning.  I really lucked out with that purchase.  The shape, color and the high slit on the leg were winners.

And now that Joseph Altuzarra is permanently on my radar, I was excited to view his pre-fall 2015.

Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2015

I was just telling a friend how I wanted to wear a smart dress for the New Year. “A dress cannot be smart, he replied. Please explain.” I proceeded to tell him about Roland Mouret.
