Timo Weiland may be the charming young designer around town, but underneath that perennial party favorite is a let’s-push-the-fashion-aesthetic kind of creative. Weiland and his design partner Alan Eckstein has teamed up on a line with Urban Outfitters and unlike many high-low collabs, this one doesn’t feel watered down. The four-piece collection is slated to launch this July and will feature some quirky accesssories for the fashion brave: think dramatic bibs, oversized bow ties, and Peter Pan collars. “We wanted to create a line that was distinctive, smart, cool, and adaptable to an everyday creative’s wardrobe,” says Weiland. Smart and cool in this instance is a bolder take than Timo’s eponymous line – expect in-your-face patterns in plaids and polka dots.
