Although the design duo of Alan Eckstein and Timo Wieland of the Timo Weiland label claim post-punk icons as muses for their Fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection, the young brand has grown exponentially since its bandana –printed-linens and “Georgetown Princess goes-earthy-on-the-weekends” themed Spring 2012 collection. (Their romper is still one of the most unique of the trend, and a favorite of ours).

The craftsmanship and sophisticated edge is unrivaled in the latest Timo Wieland collection when compared to their past designs. Layering thick wool knits over soft silks and cashmeres makes one anticipate the fall weather if only to wrap oneself in a fur-trimmed Weiland piece until snowfall. Plaid wool skirts, wisps of floral printed silks and perfectly constructed velvet pieces that accentuate every curve create a strong femininity that complimentarily contrasts with the influx of menswear in the women’s collection.

Styled with minimal jewelry, dark painted nails and chunky-heeled ankle boots:  there isn’t a look we can’t get on board with. The collection’s debut show at February 2012’s New York Fashion Week proved the notion that Timo Weiland scored the coolest models to showcase the city’s edgiest brand.
