The rumor mill: Thakoon for Target?

Glamour Magazine has reported that Target has signed Thakoon Panichgul to design an upcoming Go International collection. His limited-collection line is slated to hit stores in December.

Now this isn’t Thakoon’s first foray into frugal fashion. He worked with Gap on a white shirt project back in 2007, the result of which is pictured at left. Thankoon is known for bold prints and vintage-inspired yet modern designs – sort of a “sexy secretary” vibe. Hopefully he can bring some of that sophisticated yet wearable sensibility to the Go International line, which at best has been hit-or-miss for the past year.
