ECKHAUS LATTA is an American fashion label established in 2011 by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta.
The pair met at the Rhode Island School of Design where they studied Sculpture and Textile Design respectively. They work between studios in Los Angeles and New York City.
After graduating in 2010, Eckhaus designed men's accessories at Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Latta established her own textile company to design prints and knitwear for brands including Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein, Opening Ceremony, and Marc Jacobs. In addition, Eckhaus has gained experience in the studios of the artist Matthew Barney and fashion collective Three As Four, and currently teaches at the Pratt Institute. Latta was a fellow at The Ratti Textile Center at the Metropolitan Museum, and has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design.
ECKHAUS LATTA presents two collections a year during New York Fashion Week as a stage to explore casting, installation formats, and the role of performance. ECKHAUS LATTA questions an established structure, and the role of collaboration is innate to their practice. Previous partnerships include fashion, jewelry, performance, and audiovisual projects with numerous artists, as well as footwear collaborations with Nike and Camper Together. ECKHAUS LATTA has also exhibited projects, videos and collections at art institutions worldwide including the 55th Venice Biennale, KraupaTuskany Zeidler Gallery (Berlin), Gavin Browns Enterprise (NYC), The New Museum (NYC), The Museum of Art and Design (NYC), Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi (Berlin), MOCA (LA), MoMA PS1 (NYC), and The Hammer Museum (LA).
