Where the runway meets the street

The vision of design duo Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein, the Timo Weiland Autumn 2012 collection offers a focused bit of nostalgia, coming from a point in the past when “downtown was a true haven for artists, rock and hip-hop musicians making ends meet … Timo and Alan delved into New York City, New Wave nostalgia in a pre-rave post-punk era to develop a darker collection of luxe-grunge looks.” Those days are certainly long-gone, but definitely worth using as a reference point. Here, that past shines through in silhouettes unencumbered by a specific decade (hinting at thrifted wares; staple of the starving artist) and the understated bravado of some of the prints.

Using the litmus test of “would Sam Shepard have worn it?” this collection scored about 50-percent, for whatever that is worth to you.
