EVERYONE, TALKING ,ABOUT, ECKHAUS, LATTA
The most talked-about fashion show just happened in a yurt in Queens. Outside was an ice storm. Inside was a bopping crowd of scrappy bohemians too young to know the Tiny Toons theme song. (All together now: We’re all a little loony…) And dead center was a spiral of hard plastic chairs where editors, buyers, and various model-slash-whatevers sat waiting for the clothes to emerge. It was only Eckhaus Latta’s second official catwalk, and already, New York City thrummed with “what do you mean you don’t know them?!” buzz.

“They are part of the fabric of our new art community,” said Klaus Biesenbach, the director of MoMA PS1, where the show was held on Monday night. “They believe in bringing art across many worlds, and bringing creative people from many disciplines together. And they are very good at what they do. It’s a nightmare outside, but look how many people wanted to be a part of this.”

Those people included artists Juliana Huxtable, Susan Cianciolo, and Alexandra Marzella, who walked the show along with “regular” models. (“I think including their friends in the show is a part of who they are,” Biesenbach said. “But no, I will not be joining them on the runway!”) And some of the clothes were striking: bent black dresses and fuzzy square-cut coats, rethreaded wool that fused the RISD graduates’ sculptural training with their love of handmade textiles. The duo also love a good pun: one shoe design was described as “pumpkin spice Latta knit boot.” Solid.

“Mike and I don’t really work with inspiration,” Zoe Latta told us backstage. “We don’t believe in trends, either. Don’t get me wrong,” she insisted, “we 100% want to sell our clothes. But I can’t get behind the concept of creating a collection based strictly on marketability, at the expense of creativity.”
