September 2013 – A swimwear collaboration between Pret-a-Surf founders Jillian Demling and Karen Mulligan and celebrated American designer Thakoon sold exclusively at Barneys New York.
We paired the New York-based swimwear label, Pret-a-Surf with Thakoon Panichgul for a limited-edition collection of bikinis and rash guards. Designed as interchangeable separates, the six-piece collection included bikini tops, bottoms, and stretchy nylon tees in navy, nautical stripe, and a baby-blue paisley print from Thakoon Addition's pre-spring '14 collection.
"We have been fans of Thakoon's work for many years. He is a master with prints and color, and his aesthetic and sensibility is so in line with Pret-a-Surf that he was our ideal choice for this exciting Edition01 collaboration."
