Kohl’s Brings London In-Store with Latest Collaboration, Thakoon for DesigNation

Limited-edition collection available at Kohl’s stores nationwide and
Kohls.com starting today

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kohl’s
Department Stores
(NYSE: KSS) today announced the highly anticipated
Thakoon for DesigNation collection is available now at Kohl’s stores
nationwide and Kohls.com.
The one-of-a-kind, limited-edition, limited-time collection, features
Thakoon Panichgul’s signature style inspired by one of his favorite
cities, London.


This DesigNation capsule perfectly marries designer quality with
London’s iconic character, culture and history, creating a sophisticated
and extremely wearable capsule collection. The fall assortment is
fashioned with unique color palettes, prints and patterns and affordably
priced from $36 to $175.

“We are thrilled to partner with Thakoon during one of the biggest
fashion seasons of the year,” said Nancy Feldman, Kohl’s Executive Vice
President of women’s apparel. “He is an award-winning designer who will
bring an elevated caliber of fashion to our customers that we know they
will love.”

Panichgul, born in Thailand and raised in Omaha, Neb., brings a unique
perspective to his exclusive designs for Kohl’s. He founded his namesake
label, Thakoon in 2004 after honing his skills in business, editorial
and merchandising. He established the brand’s aesthetic early on with a
skillful blend of distinctive influences, innovative construction and
textiles, and feel for a new sense of tomboy-femininity in dressing.
These elements became the foundation for a global business.

“There is a strong sense of freedom and individuality in fashion now,
and I love to see how women make things their own,” said Panichgul.
“Thakoon for DesigNation is a repertoire of classic pieces, each with a
twist for the everyday wardrobe of the Kohl’s customer.”

Thakoon is the seventh designer to partner with Kohl’s for an exclusive
DesigNation collection, introduced in the fall of 2012 with Narciso
Rodriguez, followed by Derek Lam, Catherine Malandrino, Peter Som, Elie
Tahari, and most recently MILLY by Michelle Smith.
