Thakoon: Next Up From Target’s Go International Line

What: Thakoon is the next designer to team with Target for their Go International designer line, with clothes to hit stores in December.

What We Say: This isn’t Thakoon’s first foray into budget fashion (he worked with Gap on a white shirt project not long ago), but we’re glad he’s decided to expand his horizons into our local Target. The designer (full name:Thakoon Panichgul“> Thakoon Panichgul) is know for bold prints and vintage-inspired but modern designs, and his Fall RTW collection was full of plaids, florals, and sleek feminine shapes. We can only hope he can bring some of that sophisticated but wearable sensibility into the hit-or-miss Go International line.

    Isn’t Thakoon based in NYC?  And haven’t all the Go International designers in recent memory (Rogan Gregory, Richard Chai, Erin Fetherston) been US-based?  So whatever happened to the INTERNATIONAL part??  You have to go back to 2006/07 to find a Luella Bartley or Proenza Schouler.  Target needs to widen their reach and hire some truly global designers.
