Backstage at Eckhaus Latta's Nonconformist Fall/Winter 2018 Show
Another exciting range from the Downtown designers.
Downtown label Eckhaus Latta took to a locale in Bushwick, Brooklyn for its Fall/Winter 2018 runway show during New York Fashion Week. This season, design partners Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta continued their MO of reinterpreting conventional garments, shifting gears from last season‘s starchy structures to a softer, more billowy sensibility.
The label’s 16th collection incorporated raw or dyed denim, eccentric knitwear and sheer materials in a pastel-hued color palette. Classic suiting codes also returned in the form of rounded shoulders and flowy silk shirts, as did the assertively androgynous element a la heeled footwear and an all-inclusive, gender-neutral model lineup that featured cult producer SOPHIE and plus-size model Paloma Elsesser. The show closed with Yaeji‘s cover of Drake‘s hit song “Passionfruit,” rounding out the runway with another refreshed, unorthodox take on a mainstream composition.
