Buzzy NYC label Eckhaus Latta, founded by Zoe Latta and Mike Eckhaus, presented its SS19 co-ed collection out in the far-flung (for fashion week standards, anyway) Bushwick neighborhood. Despite its at-times dense aesthetic and the show’s esoteric setting (an abandoned warehouse space littered with cheap furniture, soundtracked by kids banging on pots), the duo presented some convincing ideas.
Intricately latticed knitwear (as seen in #7, #11 and #15) would look incredible as layering pieces, while boxy cinched blazers were a smart reworking of the dad-suit trend that’s been simmering since Demna took the reigns at Balenciaga. The duo didn’t flinch when it came to their men’s gear, either — they put the exact same ideas on the guys as the girls, a sign of how the Big Apple is truly leading the way when it comes to genderless dressing.
