It was a Sportif, Flirty Affair Chez Timo Weiland Spring 2014. Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein showed a Casual and Easy Collection with a little Modern Trickery thrown in to give it a Subtle Edge but not send it into Avant-Garde territory. It was Mostly Successful. Some Exits were a little to thin on inspiration and design but the stronger pieces held up nicely.
Some of the winners included a Graphic Mixed Media Tank Dress in Black and White at Exit No. 4 that was very Sporty and Flippy in the same breath! A White Hooded Tunic with Black Banded welt pockets over a Flip Skirt in Black at Exit No. 7 also had that same Girly/Sporty Vibe going for it. Exit No. 24 gave us the best piece in the show... A Crochet Knit Sheer Stretch of a T-Shirt dress in Graphic Black and Red Was Fresh and Clean while still being quite Femme.
There were some experiments in Cutouts and Color Blocking that looked Good but felt a little late to the game and came off slightly Askew! And there was the seasons requisite Mesh seen all over the place here and elsewhere as well as the Inescapable White-on-White trend that has came on like Gangbusters this season. And represented well was the Tiny Grungy 90's style Floral Prints that have been popping up without fail too. So, Yes. Weiland and Eckstein Captured the Zeitgeist of the season, and while there were some things that were pushing forward, the rest of the collection simply felt like it was playing catch-up!
