Timo Weiland

COASTAL NATIVE
New York:
Design team Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein delivered a collection full of urbane, beach-friendly garments, like pumpkin orange boardshorts and denim pullover windbreakers. Calico or floral shirts and pullovers were shown in baggy cuts that evoked the bloused tops worn by 18th Century East Coast Indians and woodsman alike, a look most famously portrayed in Daniel Day Lewis’ Last of the Mohicans. These garments, in addition to hefty doses of denim, help anchor the beach-focused offering, adding a nice touch of earthy gravity and conviction to otherwise light and airy pieces. There were also sporty influences, seen in the numerous baseball jackets sent down the runway, as well as in the aforementioned boardshorts, which also came in prison stripes, calico, florals, and sky blue. By the time the designers came out to take a bow to the sounds of “Rockaway Beach” by the Ramones, it was clear that this collection succeeded in balancing the fun of a beach bum lifestyle with the gravitas of an urban fashionisto.  —Andrew Luecke
