Peter Davis' Status Update: Timo's Time
"I could see every one of these looks on the cast of Gossip Girl," gushed Lucy Sykes Rellie at the Timo presentation, which designers Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein explained was a "collision of eras" or rather the Scorsese epics "The Age of Innocence meets Gangs of New York." Models on circular platforms were separated by trails of black ribbon and the pin-tucked chiffon skirts were, like, so Blair Waldorf. Timo started out as a plastic wallet company then morphed into outrageous neck wear and now has matured into a full-on fashion line. The designers celebrated with a post-show party at The Wooly which, despite snow, lured Andrew Bevan, Annabelle Dexter-Jones and photographer-about town Hanuk way, way downtown.
