i am, hands down, one of the biggest Timo Weiland fans, and i look forward to their presentation every season. not only are their clothes young, fun, and chic..but when you wear a TW piece, you turn heads. they use the most luxurious fabrics, interesting prints, and flattering cuts...and i must mention..they are the absolute nicest guys. sweet, charming, and true gentlemen.
their showing on sunday almost left me breathless. the inspiration here was British colonial life in India with smatterings of Himilayan animal prints. as i strolled through the Box at Lincoln Center, i was taken on a rock 'n roll voyage through the most eclectic streets of London where the finest tailors of Saville Row are experiencing and being inspired by Hendrix, Zeppelin, Lauren Hutton, and Bianca Jagger. and that's the kind of voyage i want to be taken on.
these pants paired with that jacket.... all day.
this beautiful print, aptly named the "Himalayan Landscape print", which is used in a coat and two dresses, paired so beautifully with the model's red hair, it was almost a crime. the smattering of yellow kept it fresh, and the draping down the front of the Katie dress added the right touch of softness to the tough-chic metallic top.
up next, metallic neutrals paired with ikat neckwarmers, zip tunics, and amazing attention to feminine detail. what you cannot see on the tailored shirt/pant combo is that down the back of the gold netting shirt, there is an ultra feminine ruffle...to die for. and don't get me started on that black/gold netting skirt. the length, cut, and sculptured structure are spot on. i could take that from the office to a dinner party in a snap.
the animal prints...le sigh. perfection. i also cannot get over how perfectly tailored those whip straight jacquard trousers are.
and last but by no means least, my heart stopper. this look is everything i live for in fashion. color, details, fur, structure, fabric, and dichotomy. the patent zipper on the on the royal blue tunic, the stunning red of the straight, neat trouser (at a cropped ankle length, my fav), the thick, structured fabric of the windowpane jacket..and THE FAUX FUR SLEEVE MUFFS. i kvelled when this look came into my line of sight and immediately started saving my money for this jacket. not kidding, instead of stopping to grab something quick for lunch, i went home and ate something i already had in the pantry. first $10 towards the coat...check!
overall, i'd have to say this is Timo Weiland's strongest collection they've shown yet. you have to be a bit bold and a bit audacious to wear some of the pieces, but fashion is not for the wallflowers, my friends! they design clothes for the woman who loves to get dressed, and finds art in putting her clothes together. bravo, Timo & Alan...genius!
