Thakoon for Kohl's Lookbook vs. Thakoon Runway

The Thakoon for Kohl's collection launches on September 10 (shop the pre-sale right now or read my Thakoon for Kohl's review), and I've been diligently studying the lookbook. Whenever a designer's capsule collection lookbook is released, I enjoy looking through the designer's archive of runway photos in order to draw comparisons between their mass market collections and their high end creations. I usually discover quite a few similarities!

The Thakoon for DesigNation at Kohl's line is inspired by London, a city that's near and dear to my heart. It features three-dimensional knits perfect for layering, and a mash-up of English rose prints, as well as checks and plaids. It's a feminine tomboy vibe with relaxed silhouettes and a British twist. (I'm thinking some print mixing for myself will be in order.) 

Let's see just how similar the #ThakoonforKohls collection is to Thakoon's recent runway looks.

Above, an A-line floral dress in a dark and moody color palette channels autumn perfectly.

In both of the looks above, charcoal knit pullovers with side vents are layered over slim black pants for a modern look.

Mock neck capelets with contrasting trims add polish and sophistication to A-line shapes.

Both of the looks above feature printed blouses layered under sweaters and styled with A-line skirts.

Cozy patch pockets in charcoal grey knits offer warmth for the hands. The garment on the left is actually a hooded scarf, which I'm adding to my wish list.

Checked coats with front zips and sporty split side seams inject a tomboy element to both of these looks.

Above, oversized vests (shop the Kohl's plaid version here) in rugged fabrics are styled with sleek black separates.

Cable knit sweaters and mock layers with A-line skirts give both of these looks a mix of masculine and feminine elements.
