Timo Weiland has become a staple of modern New York fashion but this latest collection seemed far too dull to be considered cool enough for the urban crowd. Citing the post punk era of New York City as inspiration, Weiland’s collection was a mix between grunge and prep.
The womenswear was certainly the grungier part of the show. A floral maxi under a leather jacket opened the show and set the scene for what the Weiland woman would be wearing this season—decadent textiles like leather and fur layered over the grunge that the designer found his inspiration in.
The menswear was inherently preppier but definitely bordered on dull. The printed shirts and occasional printed trouser were fun but not prevalent enough to leave a mark on this collection. Weiland usually gets it so right that it’s a little jarring to see him get it so wrong this season.
