NEW YORK (AP) — Can you dig the turf?

One of the few constants on the catwalk during New York Fashion Week has been the mixing of fabrics and textures on a single garment — sort of like colorblocking 2.0. But no one had gone where Thakoon Panichgul went during his fall collection preview on Sunday: to the turf.

The nubby, shiny material familiar to varsity athletes surprisingly made sense on a coat that was paired with a goat-skin collar shawl, lace-inset blouse and stretch-wool seamed pants.

But the Thakoon show wasn't a one-trick wonder: Panichgul put together a cohesive catwalk of seemingly unrelated modern neoprene, a space-age dandelion print, beaded dragonfly embroidery and wallpaper-inspired florals.

He hit on a few of the trends that seem to be emerging from these previews, including peplums and structured rounded shoulders, but his collection was not done with a heavy hand, leaving a pleasant trail of almost vintagelike looks.
