Thakoon adding footwear to his repertoire
The Thai-American designer puts some sole into his label expansion
The next Pre-Fall season will mark the first one of footwear for Thakoon Addition — which is stocked in 150 stores — and play an integral role in Thakoon's expansion plan for his eponymous brand.
"I knew shoes would be something exciting to explore, but waited until the opportunity presented itself to explore it fully," stated the designer, who is working alongside production partner Six London to launch the new collection.
In the past, Thakoon has collaborated with Laurence Dacade on his runway footwear and previously worked with Giuseppe Zanotti. He also partnered with Nine West on a capsule shoe collection in 2006.
The latest 10-style collection of Addition shoes will be priced at $375 to $565, with many of Thakoon's existing retailers, including Harvey Nichols, Net-a-Porter, and Saks Fifth Avenue already picking them up.
