Eckhaus Latta

New York City-based fashion label Eckhaus Latta is the brainchild of Rhode Island School of Design alumni Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, who became close friends during the course of their respective studies in sculpture and textile arts. The duo embarked on creative and entrepreneurial pursuits following graduation, gaining experience which they would ultimately parlay into the development and launch of their avant-garde namesake brand in 2012. Emerging from a dynamic design process based on intuition and independence from trends, their frequently gender-fluid pieces are made to appeal to those who take an individualistic approach to their wardrobe. Multi-tonal textural knits and panelled logo t-shirts project deconstructed, lived-in appeal with half-sewn hems and spliced seams, while unexpected fabrics are shown to their best advantage in amply-cut trousers.
