After watching the live stream of Thakoon Panichgul's Spring 2012 collection, I instantly thought, "Grannies Gone to Reno" (in the best possible way) - due to it's Lilly Pulitzer esque prints, candy colored hair, color blocked cowboy hats & gold lamèflooring. Granted, Thakoon thought of something slightly different: the perspective of America from afar, as narrated by India.
When it comes to remixed, preppy gear, Tommy Hilfiger has really hit the nail on the head, lately. His collection for Fall is a fine example of said edged americana. I loved everything about Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2011, right down to the patchwork flooring.
A behind the scenes look at the soon to be released Mark McNairy Spring 2012 lookbook, styled by L.A.S., of Sartorially Inclined & How To Talk To Girls At Parties. Make sure you check out the shoes throughout the video; they're Mark McNairy's collaboration with Pro-Keds, which I regretfully didn't buy on my trip to New York, last week.
Just in case you were the type of girl to stress over what to wear to the golf course, Miuccia Prada suggests some exaggerated khaki gear and fifties inspired florals, just so you can accompany your man in his wasp-y Prada gear, to the club's course (because you weren't actually thinking of picking up a nine iron in these clothes).
Like I said, "just in case you were the type of girl" - slim odds? Probably.
"Miucca Prada gives the American summer a swift kick in the seat of its WASP-y golf pants, and the result is utterly original." -GQ on Prada's Spring collection for the guys, which undoubtedly sums up Miuccia's Resort offerings, too.
