New York and Los Angeles based label Eckhaus Latta was founded by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, friends who met attending Rhode Island School of Design where they respectively studied sculpture and textile arts. After college, the two ventured off into several different artistic pursuits within the fashion industry. Through their different ventures, the two were able to accumulate essential knowledge and experience that would lead to the 2011 launch of their brainchild, Eckhaus Latta. Known for its avant-garde and gender neutral approach to modern fashion, Eckhaus Latta breaks boundaries of what is considered the status quo. Eckhaus Latta works with bold patterns and materials, with their standout pieces consisting of exposed seams, cutouts and elevated deconstruction.
