Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta have created some memorable runway experiences, having held shows in a Lower East Side community garden, on a path all along the East River, during COVID-19, and at the abandoned Essex Street Market, to name a few.
But this season they slowed things down, staging their fall 2024 collection in an empty warehouse space at 75 Varick with singer Loren Kramar setting a melancholy mood as the models walked — oh so slowly — through the space.

On the runway, the collection was all business, as in the business of selling cozy outerwear, teddy cardigans, washed denim and slinky knit dresses with an undercurrent of sex in the revealing cuts, sheer layers and extra details.
Standout looks included the brown spiral cutout tube skirt and beige cropped jacket trimmed in faux fur that opened; mushroom pleated washed corduroy pants styled with a rib-knit vest and irresistible shaggy boa scarf; shiny oxblood pants with matching snap front jacket in an intriguing corrugated texture, and a black slipdress with carwash pleats.
It wasn’t their most transporting collection, but it had lots to turn to for the everyday.
