Eckhaus Latta’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection is built for those who fancy a statement. Governed by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, the cheeky line extends the brand’s signature downtown wardrobe with skin-revealing silhouettes for occasions of both swanky and nonchalant dress codes. This New York Fashion Week, the brand’s next batch of forward-but-classy styles actualized on the marble lobby floors of the International Building in Rockefeller Center.
The first look included a soil-colored Hide Jacket, paired with a sculpted, transparent T-shirt and leather pants. Jacob Bixenman emerged in a similar, torso-bearing top and obsidian nylon trousers, before Paloma Elsesser appeared in a lacey dress that flattered the human form. Button-down shirts, in succession, featured a “contour” line pattern that organically shaped its wearers’ arms and chests, while “flora” iterations offered a peak behind the textile with intricate, woven blossoms.
Barbie‘s Hari Nef bared a two-piece set made in Latta’s signature see-through fabric, which, at this point, had proven to be the collection’s hero. The textile later appeared again in jacket form and once more as a knee-length skirt, styled with a shiny, sterling jacket. The button-up ensemble’s green-tinged, reflective material then took center stage, forming straight-leg trousers, a zip-up, full-length skirt and high-waisted jeans.
Translucent textiles remained constant, building a new identity with a sheer blue finish in later looks. Button-downs featured a mix of transparent and opaque sections, and dresses, too, tastefully cut out clear shapes on their sides. Ian Jeffrey sported an abstract tank top, made with the dichotomous materials, along with floral pants and off-white leather boots.
In the final round of looks, Latta tapped textile innovator Unspun for reconstructive denim pants, which were joined by a pair of Vans customized by the brand. Tidal jeans and wide-leg tinsel trousers, also products of Latta’s Unspun collab, were ready for an afterparty, with glistening finishes. As models ascended and descended the venue’s central escalators, Eckhaus Latta’s versatility became clear. Exhibiting mastery across daywear, eveningwear, sportswear and clubwear, the brand is positioning itself in all stylistic sectors under one unified vision.
