For spring 2014, Thakoon turned away from the inherent lavishness of his recent references—which have ranged from the gilded halls of Versailles to colorful Bollywood romance—to focus on simplicity, clean tailoring and thoughtful details.

The looks may have been covetous (a slim white trouser with just the right amount of slouch, for example), and certainly, the mood in fashion right now has a minimalist lean, but we found ourselves missing Thakoon's signature exuberant prints.

Do we need to say it again? Look through those old halter dresses gathering dust in your closet. The '90s are back, people—there is no escape, as evidenced by this siren red number with a slick patent skirt.

Given the easy wearability of most of Thakoon's new pieces, some of the more experimental dresses like this asymmetric printed sundress felt incongruous.

Surprisingly, we were keener on Thakoon's separates. Our favorite look (pictured) consisted of a striped cotton tee, crisp white trousers and a sleek navy vest styled with a pearl-chained cross body bag.

Stop what you're doing and go to the gym—like, now. If one message is clear from the spring shows thus far, it's that we'll all be doing some belly-bearing six months from now.

Skirts seem to be skewing long for spring, but Thakoon was pushing the swishy mini.

This ladylike look in all white had sophisticated extras like a pearl-string clutch and open-toe cream booties.

Sure, it felt a little random in the context of the rest of the collection, but we still dug the fluffy texture of this metallic shift dress in pale pink—one of the few pieces that seemed to demonstrate Thakoon's usual vivacity.
