Timo Weiland: The Brand
The team’s first men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collection debuted for Spring-Summer 2010. The collection firmly established their romantic, yet modern edge to dandy downtown dressing. Based in and inspired by New York City, the Timo Weiland collection reflects Timo, Alan, and Donna’s personal aesthetic sensibilities and a broader desire to spur a return to the art of dressing.
Timo Weiland works with established luxury retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s, and key independents like Intermix, Shopbop, and Atrium New York. Celebrities the likes of Taylor Swift, Tina Fey, Sophia Bush, and Pharrell are supporters of Timo Weiland, and are often seeing wearing their designs on the red carpet.
The designers won the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund award in January 2014. The designers were recognized for their smart, innovative Men’s design, and unique attention to detail. “The Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation is one of the first and one of the most coveted emerging designer awards programs in the fashion industry,” said Marylou Luther, Editor of The International Fashion Syndicate and a judge for the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation. “This year’s winners represent an exciting blend of backgrounds, influences and approaches that highlight the promise of today’s young designers and complement an already impressive list of winners. The words Ecco Domani are the perfect metaphor for what these awards represent to the American fashion industry literally and figuratively—here’s tomorrow!”
The brand was also nominated and one of the finalists for the International Woolmark Prize in 2013 and 2014 both. The brand was also part of the CFDA Incubator for 2012 and 2013 years.
