I have been keeping up with the recent fashion shows in New York for Spring/Summer 2017 and I wanted to do a piece on one of my favorites: Eckhaus Latta. In the last seasons, I've grown more and more to love their designs, and this season was no exception.
Now what makes this show my favorite? It's not only about the collection but the entire show and all of it's elements that made it to the top of my list. Keep scrolling below to find out more about why I enjoyed this collection & show so much...
I absolutely loved their models. Such unique faces that varied in age, race, and gender. This is unlike that of many runway shows, but they are known for doing this often. This makes their shows not only a unique experience but presents their collections as something that can appeal to so many different kinds of people with varied styles. It also makes their collections unable to truly be be classified as "womenswear" or "menswear". I am passionate about the rise and growth of "ungendered" fashion so this is very unique and exciting to see. (Below you can see some "backstage" photos of the models)
The collection was an elevated simplicity with details that added a unique touch that stayed true to the brand. The garments had an artistic edge. They were essentially basics with great silhouettes that were deconstructed in areas or had detailing elements that made them unique. This collection began with Zoe Latta stating how she was thinking about "making things that we want to wear". (Below are some shots from the runway)
