the latest to use the intricacies of Cane? the designer Thakoon Panichgul when wondering- "How do we make the back of the coat a little sexier?”
who knew Caning was Sexy?
Sexy in the form of the age old technique of Caning- this time in leather.
On second thought-
well yes, Caning. It does reveal & conceal- that is Sexy.
Bringing an Art such as Caning to Fashion is what makes Thakoon such a great designer & what makes Fashion an Inspiration.
