The Timo Weiland Spring 2011 presentation was an absolute honor to attend. On Sunday September 12th at Lincoln Center, the oceanic inspired collection made me immediately wish I was out to sea, on a fabulous yacht of course! The collection was a delight to embrace. Menswear featured skillfully crafted cotton seersucker suits, striped blazers as well as fisherman coats. Men’s espadrilles featured were designed by Soludos while paired with striped socks. Men’s leather shoes were Timo Weiland x Esquivel.
Scandinavian fjordlands was also such a huge inspiration for the collection. The female looks were bold and playful, with the most chic retro shades. Glittery pink and blacked out, I was instantly obsessed. On the flip side, all of the guys were wearing the exact same glasses donned by Timo Weiland himself! There was an eye-popping red hue that I adore throughout the female looks. Soft yellows, and muted blues and grays painted such a beautiful picture of what spring attire SHOULD be. I can already see those quirky prints and striped knits flowing so beautifully in a warm spring breeze. Stuart Weitzman provided the delicate womens shoes.
Celebrity sightings at the Presentation included Gillian Jacobs and actress Shenae Grimes. Debuting at the presentation on Sunday was the Timo Weiland short film “The Watch” produced in collaboration with artist Ryan McNamara, while directed by Shal Ngo.

The fun continued later that night when Samurai Love Sake and Fashionista.com celebrated Timo Weiland Spring 2011 collection at Ohm, a fabulous luxury property with a perfect view overlooking the Highline. The celebration was enhanced with a live performance by The Rassle. Attendees sipped saki with the likes of celebrity baseball player Daryl Strawberry and hip hop artist John Brown.
