Eckhaus Latta A/W 2018
Mood Board: Designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta have been steadily moving towards a more polished point of view. Although still pushing forward with their authentic, conceptual approach to things, the underground duo (who both graduated from Rhode Island School of Design) have been experimenting with tailoring since last season – an aspect that they expanded upon more with this latest showing. Presented in a warehouse setting in Bushwick, their gender-neutral take on more conservative double-breasted jacket dresses, suiting and flowing trousers still made a strong and relevant statement.
Best in Show: While maturing, the label’s artistic flourishes still proved to be the most memorable. From heavy pile knitwear in graphic patterns, bright colours and fringing, to floaty tie-dye print trousers and blouses, these youthful, hand-revealing gestures easily encapsulated the excitement around the label that people have been buzzing about.
Finishing Touches: Accessories this season were mostly restrained, apart from the footwear, which included high boots designed by the label and produced by Camper Together, an array of mule sandals by Eckhaus Latta for Schutz and leather boots by Giorgio Brutini. Gauzy gloves by Caroline Amato were also paired with knitwear.
