fashion brand // eckhaus latta


five minutes ago, i discovered the fashion brand eckhaus latta. after seeing the above image on tumblr, i quickly scoured the internet and ultimately found out the following: eckhaus latta launched in 2012. the line is designed by brooklyn-based duo, mike eckhaus and zoe latta. they're college friends from risd who come from a fine arts and textile background. opening ceremony says the designers "offer an alternate way of looking at clothing and fashion [in which they] create pieces based on concept instead of trend." they sometimes create gender-bending separates and the label plays with unusual fabrics like industrial plastic and transparent leather. eckhaus latta's presentations are performance-based; for example, their spring 2013 fashion week presentation showcased models donning their looks on treadmills (hence the image above). and this past september, style.com labeled their spring 2015 collection as the next big thing. cool.

some of their other cool creations:
