Returning to my home away from home soon. And with home I mean New York City. The city I used to live in and will never be forget. That’s why I had to bring some New York flavor to this blog.
ECKHAUS LATTA is a New York based fashion label designed and executed by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. The two met while attending the Rhode Island School of Design, where they studied Sculpture and Textile Design, respectively. After graduating (BFA 2010), they designed and worked with many labels, artists and institutions including Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Matthew Barney, Opening Ceremony, The Ratti Textile Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and threeASFOUR. Together in 2011, Mike and Zoe founded ECKHAUS LATTA.
The Designers release collections semi-annually during NYFW. In addition to their shows and presentations, Eckhaus Latta produces videos with the director Alexa Karolinski to further contextualize their collections. The brand has also participated in various artists collaborations including: designing uniforms for Dora Budor’s piece at the 55th Venice Biennale, an edition of Deodorant with the trend-forecasting agency K-HOLE supported by Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler Gallery in Berlin, a collection for Bjarne Melgaard’s show at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise and outfits for Xavier Cha’s Fruit Machine at the New Museum. This past summer their work was included in the Museum of Art and Design’s NYC Makers Biennial and they will be premiering their SS15 collection video at MOCA in January.
