Eckhaus Latta presented at Milk Studios a Spring 2013 collection of artistic conversation starters. Translucent leather jackets that look like latex, bottom-boob cleavage baring tops, an abstract John and Yoko printed diaper, and a pensive Michael Kors printed on a sheer tunic emblazoned thrice with the Eckhaus Latta logo. With a fine arts approach, Zoe Latta and Mike Eckhaus design based on dialogue they share between themselves and the community beyond. Exploring the space between vigorous movement and nonchalant repose, models lay on air mattresses and power walk on treadmills, showing that these avant garde garments are meant to be worn and talked about.
See the full collection, and explanation, ahead.
Peer closely into the depths of this “diaper” and you’ll see the blown apart image of the John Lennon/Yoko Ono Rolling Stone cuddle. That’s because all the materials that look dyed are actually digitally printed.
This collection evolved as a work of fine art, each piece built off the next, rather than a predetermined sketched set. Watch it unfurl and come together.
