Timo Weiland showed his men’s and women’s collections separately this season — and the men’s wear was all the better for it. “We didn’t want to have to make them match,” Weiland noted. Jackets with hexagon quilting, wool coats adorned with neckwear patterns and a sweater decorated with an image of design partner Alan Eckstein’s dachshund, Coconut, were ready-made for the trendy Brit-pop scene that inspired the lineup. Add the duo’s catchy windowpane trousers and the hat collaboration with Albertus Swanepoel, and the hits kept coming. While Weiland was nursing a broken arm from a holiday skiing accident, the mishap didn’t seem to slow down the momentum for this youthful label.
