On Saturday, Eckhaus Latta transformed New York’s beautiful El Jardin del Paraiso into a grassy, sun-lit runway for its Spring/Summer 2023 show.

To the elegant strums of harpist Mary Lattimore, models entered the scene wearing abstract metal knit tops and foil harnesses, breezy net dresses and tanks, red-beaded tops and ribboned sweaters, zip-off shorts, fluted skirts and a legion of bubble-inspired statement-makers. Imminently, the collection — governed by namesake visionaries Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta — spoke its message to its onlookers: Eckhaus Latta marches to the beat of its own drum.

Musician Ethel Cain graced the walkway wearing a classy boucle jacket and matching skort in ecru, epitomizing the imprint’s ability to adhere to proper dress codes without sacrificing its trademark edge. On Ian Jeffrey, floral-embroidered trousers secured unforeseen elevation from a built-in skirt with decorative tassels, and on Jacob Bixenman, a cheeky, avant-garde pant, or “bubble object,” as the brand calls it, left one leg entirely exposed under a similarly blown-up polo.

Undoubtedly, though, it was the knitted ensembles printed with the artworks of Matthew Underwood, a dear friend of Latta’s who passed away in 2019, that made the collection impactful. Underwood’s legacy — one marked by his inventive penchant for medium-blending craftsmanship across audio, electronic and performance art — achieved physical manifestation across a series of ribboned and foil assemblages. And in celebration of the visionary’s life, the label made a donation to the Trevor Project, a non-profit centered on suicide prevention efforts among the LGBTQ+ community, in his name.

Elsewhere, Balenciaga and Sky High Farm Workwear revealed a charitable collaboration.
