Everything was dark and black. You could barely see anything, except for the light from the mobile phones of those present. But suddenly, white lights illuminated the labyrinth-like room of the New York Performance Space, the venue for Eckhaus Latta‘s latest show during New York Fashion Week.

Demdike Stare’s music was playing, and it got louder until it broke and the creations designed by the duo of designers that make up the brand, Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, began to appear.

Black was one of the main protagonists of the line, and above all of the first part, since until look number 17, we hardly saw any other color than this or the lime green that added the acid touch to some of them.

There was a differentiation between the looks at the beginning and those at the end. This was related to the path in search of light, that when the right direction was found, we started to see the optimistic touches of pink, or light yellow and cream pieces. From this moment on we could see the garments that truly reflected the essence of the brand, such as the jumpers and waistcoats in sand composition, the cardigans with openings in the chest area and with zip, and the faded jeans in brown.

Continuing with the distinctions, but this time referring not to the looks but to the rest of the collections presented previously, the proposal that was seen was something totally new. You know what they say, renew or die. And Zoe and Mike corroborate what we say since for your information the new E.L. vibe comes after FedEx lost their main collection last season. As you can imagine, it’s not a nice thing to have to happen, but there’s a silver lining to everything, and that bad mood and sense of living on the edge that it generated at the time has been reflected in the line.

And blessed be that feeling of living on the edge, because thanks to it, garments like the amber organza shirt or the leather bow skirts in black (the look that closed the men’s part, not the show) were made.
