Breaking: Thakoon to Do a Target Collection!

Target just announced Thakoon will design its next diffusion line. The collection will launch in December and be available in Target stores and online through January.

It sounds like the perfect partnership for the label since it isn’t huge yet and such a collaboration would be a great way to expand its customer base. After making his runway debut in 2005, Thakoon Panichgul was nominated for a CFDA award this year in the Swarovski womenswear category. And he told us Michelle Obama even bought a suit from his Chicago store. So sounds like he’s on the fast track to getting big.
