>> Thakoon Does Jewelry for Tasaki; Moises de la Renta Rumored for Mango
—Just as his contract with Hogan has expired, Thakoon has taken up a new responsibility: creative director for Japanese fine jeweler Tasaki, the world's biggest pearl supplier.  This is his first major foray into jewelry, and the Thakoon for Tasaki collection will be unveiled in February.  Moises de la Renta is also reportedly on deck for a partnership — he's "about to ink a deal" with Mango.
