The Spring 2012 Timo Weiland collection, co-designed by Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein, marks the brand’s first runway show.

As such, the collection mixed the urban and tailored (think sheer panel, lace-accented white dress and trench coats) with the tropical and relaxed (think red, strapless cropped top and patterned shorts).Custom prints and textured fabric once again made up a number of the key looks and the Weiland boys – no strangers to collaborations – teamed with Subversive for jewelry and Tsubo for shoes for a collection that mixed the sportiness of Alexander Wang with the downtown-cool of Charlotte Ronson.
