    It's hard to look effortless while wearing pieces that actually belong on a runway, but leave it to Thakoon to bring on the ease without ever risking seeming sloppy. The designer, who pulled inspiration from The Great Gatsby for both the collection and the beauty looks, sent models down the runway wearing billowing silhouettes that were every bit as flattering as they were wearable.

    Layers of sheer, sharp cut-outs; floral prints; and bird references made the intricate collection feel versatile in a beautifully work-to-play way. As hair stylist Odile Gilbert put it, "the inspiration was a girl gardening. There are cages and birds and flowers in her garden. We wanted something very strict but also at the same time an easy quality." This theme of the interplay between hard and soft that ran throughout Thakoon's collection. The hardest part for us, though? Waiting until spring to get a little gardening done ourselves (and, of yeah, to get our hands on the threads, too).
