Timo Weiland Channels Keith Richards In India
Colonial India by-way-of 1960's British rock stars was the starting point for Timo Weiland's fall '11 collection
, with designers Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein
sending Keith Richards and Gloria Vanderbilt back in time to an edged-up Mumbai. Rich jacquards, lively prints, and tiger stripes were meant to give a subcontinental feel, while classic English plaids and tailoring were purely ex-pat rock-n-roll fodder. This season's it-color, electric blue, also popped up in great pieces for guys—most notably in a hip slim pants and a slightly oversize sweater. The women's looks were more eclectic—subdued metallics and luxe satins added glamour, while techno splatter prints suggested an extended Richard's ecstasy trip. The offerings were indeed a lot to digest at times, but that also meant that there were plenty of statement-makers for fashion risk-takers, which is what this house is all about. Overall, it was a collection with a lot to like, and a definite step in the right direction for a label that will undoubtedly have a bright future.
