Michelle Watch: Back To Thakoon, Another Score For Kors

-------

Of course, the First Lady dressed American as the Obamas boarded Air Force One this morning headed to the G-20 summit in London. Oh, but which Americans?! Her Chanel-esque ensemble of white and black collarless coat and black wool shift is, respectively, from longtime favorite Thakoon and new favorite Michael Kors, who also had the honor of his racer-back gown being immortalized in Mrs. Obama’s official White House portrait. (We couldn’t identify the double-strand pearl necklace with flower pendant, though it certainly rounds out the whole Rue Cambon-via-Seventh Avenue thing she’s got going on.) The coat is a completely off-collection piece created custom by Thakoon Panichgul for the First Lady. While it looks like tweed, it’s actually a silk tulle that’s been flocked to resemble the classic fabric, following in the designer’s penchant for witty, trompe l’oeil materials; the trim is black grosgrain ribbon. We’ve got considerably less information on the Kors sheath, other than that it’s likely made of double-faced wool. (It looks a lot like look four from Fall 2009.) And speaking of faces, are we going to see the first Obama vs. Bruni-Sarkozy fashion face-off? We can only hope.

    michelle obama’s style is overrated, she dresses well but.. she’s no Jackie O..

    oh no Michelle is looking very “old guard” here. I normally love what she chooses, but the hair and coat are uptight here. Please keep the fresh edge.
