Amidst a refreshingly buzzy show at Lincoln Center, Timo Weiland presented their first full runway show for Spring 2012. Playful with the sense of youth and adventure that embodies the Timo philosophy, ever chic.
Color Palette: Grows from neutrals of brown, olive and tan to the brightest orange/pink combo we’ve seen in years.
Mood: It’s New York artist goes to Hawaii, revisits 90′s roots.
Statement Pieces: The hat. The HAT! This twist of genius is what would happen if you took a floppy sun hat and chopped it into a baseball cap.
Front Row: Johnny Weir in hot orange bell bottoms – a lady’s runway sample, thank you. And Thomas Jane, HBO’s well Hung man. Mickey Boardman of Paper and Steven Kolb, CFDA CEO also took seat front and center.
Gossip: Steven Kolb nearly opted out of the show, lamenting the late Sunday night timing. But seeing as he was still there at Lincoln Center nearing 9PM, he stuck it out for the CFDA’s newest incubatee.
Runway Music: After a night of marathon ping-ponging with The Strokes’ bassist and his wife, Timo Weiland and (design partner) Alan Eckstein organically grew to collaborate together. Strokes man Nikolai Fraiture arranged the music for the show. Behold the set list:
Girls Names — “Lawrence”
Rolling Stones — “Monkey Man”
La Femme — “Sur La Planche”
Panda Bear — “Last Night at The Jetty”
Dirty Beaches — “Sweet 17″
Suicide – -”Ghost Rider”
Broken Social Scene — “Pacific Theme”
Arthur Russell — “See Through”
Talk Talk — “New Grass”
Happy Mondays — “Loose Fit”
The Strokes — “Hawaii”
The Ramones — “Judy Is a Punk”
