The collections' subdued colour palette combined with sophisticated frayed detailing renders pieces light and youthful. Clean cuts and boxy silhouettes underpin Charlie May's style whilst printed illustrations by Clym Evernden evoke elements of the Devon coastline.

    NEW SEASON - Eckhaus Latta Womens Oversized Rusted Denim Coat
    Eckhaus Latta Women's Oversized Rusted Denim Coat from SS15 in Blue Oversized jean coat. Crafted from cotton in a classic denim weave. Overdyed Sulphur bottom denim with a rusted patina effect. Collarless construction. Fastens with metal logo embossed buttons. Metal logo embossed buttons at rear hem. Two large front pockets. Buttoned cuffs. Oversized construction. Large relaxed fitting coat. Model wears size small. Material: 100% cotton. Dry clean only. Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta formed their eponymous line Eckhaus Latta to incorporate their experience gathered from an impressive list of previous employers, including Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs. The collections are designed cross-continentally, taking the sun-bleached tones of Los Angeles and the metropolitan sensibilities of New York City to create an inventive, often androgynous collection of hand-crafted textiles in warped and body conscious shapes. The focus for Spring 2015 was a performance of sexuality for Eckhaus Latta. Semi-sheer ribbed dresses and pullovers are wrapped and slashed to seductively reveal panels of flesh. Close fitting, bleach toned knitwear is contradicted by exploding, skirt-like volumes of luxurious denim, which is strenuously hand-treated with oxidised steel to create the effect of rusting metal. Signature denim also takes form in jackets with blown-out proportions and jeans with slashed knees, combined with aged Oxford shirt dresses. Simultaneously experimental and wearable, this season takes basics and re-imagines them with a constant sense of flourish and modernity.
