Cowboys and Indians
Susanna Lau's view of New York S/S 2012

The title doesn't refer to Red Indians but the cowboy spirit was well and truly alive at Thakoon's new collection along with a look at the Indian origins of the paisley pattern.  It was an unexpected culture clash that yielded striking results. Thakoon seems to be gaining confidence in his print play that now dares to be risky as opposed to straight-forward pretty.
