Taking Ray Bradbury's novel Dandelion Wine and running with it, designer Thakoon Panichgul was out to depict "summer captured and stoppered" in his Fall line-up. Such a whimsical theme can teeter on the edge of darling—especially when you use dragon fly motifs and dandelion prints, as Thakoon did—but he grounded it in high necklines and a palette of slate grey, ivory, deep blues, lilac, and one striking pink. Two stand-out motifs include vertical paneling in see-through lace and long fur wrap collars in cheetah, various neutrals, and a light blue. Practical meets ethereal. Done and done.
