A Magazine N°17 Curated by Eckhaus Lattafeatured a fashion spread titled “They’re just like us.” The paparazzi-style picture story followed the Eckhaus Latta team on the streets of New York and Los Angeles, showcasing the clothes as companions of the everyday. In New York, Zoe Latta and Mike Eckhaus introduced their Autumn/Winter 2020 collection with a poem glorifying the small habits and unconscious questionings of our daily lives. “A seat at the table constructed out of the following: Plagiarized spirituality, low lighting, said dandruff, the mind heart alliance, the weight of empathy, relaxation techniques, those bubbles of air they put in sneakers that feel so good unit… Pop! They don’t! You adapt.” The duo put the emphasis on sustainability, with an always diverse casting, with the aim of giving their clothes various life cycles. In this approach, Eckhaus Latta collaborated with the resale website The RealReal using secondhand footwear put for sale online after the show.
“ANCIENT IDEAS OF BEING IN THE OCEAN ON A RINSE CYCLE, COMMANDING A ROOM, SPACIAL EXCITEMENT, LOCALIZED ENERGIES, SNAP DIVISION LIMBO.”
