Inspired by “the early stages of love” and also weekend dressing, Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein and Donna Kang wanted their Timo Weiland collection for spring to feel romantic, but more importantly, comfortable. “If it’s slim-cut, there’s a stretch to it,” explained Kang. “If it’s woven, there’s a lightness to it.”
Done in lightweight knits, cotton linens and silk chiffons, the charming lineup certainly exuded a relaxed ease. Feminine details added a softness to the looks, as in a denim ruffled skirt with a cutaway hem or mixed media knits featuring sheer floral lace inserts or fringe. Flower-print dresses and tops were juxtaposed against more streamlined pinstripe and windowpane patterns, seen on a pair of navy shorts with a mesh hemline. Even the more boyish pieces — such as a white cotton poplin shirtdress, also offered in a bodysuit — came with subtly sexy cutout shoulders.
