Thakoon's Fall 2013 collection might have stepped out seasonally, but for his next he's going where no high fashion has gone before: Honey Boo Boo-land, a.k.a. white trash paradise. Thakoon Panichgul told The Cut that his house in the Catskills got him thinking, "Oh my God, it's kind of weird, but I've seen things in the Catskills that are—can I say 'white trash'? and I'm like, 'wait a minute, that's kind of genius.'" Fashion critics will be the judge of that, but until then, he's keeping mum about what exactly he's seen and how it relates to future collections. [The Cut]
