Thakoon and Kohl’s team up for spring 2015 collection

Kohl’s is one of the leading department stores in the United States with 1,164 stores in 49 of the 50 states. At the end of April, they announced their collaboration with fashion designer Thakoon Panichugul with a limited-edition collection.

Thakoon Panichugul was originally born in Thailand and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. He was a student at Pasons The New School for Design in New York City and launched his first womens wear collection in 2004. His clothing and accessories are sold in 180 specialty and department stores in 32 countries.

Thakoon’s iconic designs can be seen on Michelle Obama from the 2008 Democratic National Convention in a floral print dress and on Emma Stone at the 2014 Met Gala in a pink two-piece.

“I am excited to partner with Kohl’s to share my process of inspiration,” said Thakoon Panichgul in a press release. “The DesigNation collection allows me to explore London, a city I have always loved, and to showcase its style culture through our lens.”

Thakoon will be the seventh DesigNation collection for Kohl’s. The collection will include timeless looks of everyday fashion with inspiration from London where he recently celebrated the brand’s tenth anniversary.

“We are excited to bring Thakoon to our customers this fall to enhance our women’s apparel offerings with innovative designs, great quality and great value,” said Nancy Feldman, Kohl’s executive vice president of women’s apparel in the same press release.

Everything in the collection, from knit tops to dresses will be less than $200. Get ready for the launch online and in stores beginning fall 2015, just in time for back to school shopping.
