New Designer: Timo Weiland

Elizabeth

Timo Weiland is already well-known in the fashion world for his collections of neckwear and eco-friendly wallets, but this season marked his first full collection for men and women. We stopped by the Maguire Steele showroom earlier this week to take a look at the collection up close. Weiland’s design partner Alan Eckstein was on hand to walk us through every pleat and placket detail of the collection.

In honor of the careful tailoring the two emphasize, pieces feature this TW crest on the inside.

Trying on the amazing jacket. Each piece mixes classic and modern elements with their shape, materials, and detailing.

This sweater was originally designed for the men’s collection, but fit better with the women’s. The knit and shape of the seams is reminiscent of Alaia, but the silk collar gives it a suitwear feel.

This is the first piece they designed for the collection. The layers of loops were inspired by their neckwear designs.

Jumpers with that perfect French-schoolgirl-who-is-really-a-total-sexpot feel.

Underneath the jumper is a romper that can also be worn alone.

The dress you will want to wear all spring long. It comes in silk and a men’s shirting material.

Must-have garden party dress. The play of textures and sheer against opaque are very important for the collection.

This skirt made the front page of WWD on the second day of New York Fashion Week–a huge honor for a first collection. Again, the piece plays with texture and sheers.

Little gloves that were for their show and sadly won’t be sold.

Don’t worry, to counteract the volume on these shorts, Alan and Timo spent a lot of time tailoring the perfect butt.
