The latest installment of Anthropologie's Made in Kind designer collections hits stores today, and includes collections by New York hipster label Timo Weiland, tea-dress master Tracy Reese, Los Angeles indie boutique TenOverSix, and artist Sophie Duran.
"There's very much an understanding of each other's aesthetic," said Weiland of his namesake brand and Anthro at last week's New York City party celebrating the collections. "There's a nice juxtaposition between our uptown meets downtown girl, contemporary art obsessed and this youthful, very romantic bohemian attitude, and I think that's the crossover." Weiland and his design partner Alan Eckstein's collection, called "Vessel," features earthy printed blouses, ruffled skirts and my personal favorite, a laser-cut eyelet suede dress.
Reese's line includes six brightly colored party dresses, perfect for the impending party season. Like the Timo Weiland boys, Reese found it easy to fuse her own label's aesthetic with Anthropologie's. "It's sort of a natural match. I think that our customer has so much in common, it's like almost the same girl," she said. "I feel like the customer here, silhouette wise, loves a little fit and flare dress — so do I. We're girls! Not just girlie girls, but people who embrace color, are playful . . . not so sober and overly serious. I think that we share a certain spirit."
