It was India inspired theme all the way at designer Timo Weiland’s fall 2011 collection showcased at New York. Designers Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein, went back in time to an edged up city of Mumbai. The designers chose to represent the Colonial Indian era by-way-of-1960’s British rockstars. Rich jacquards, lively prints, and tiger stripes were meant to give a sub-continental feel, while classic English tailoring were purely ex-pat rock-n-roll fodder. The women's looks were more eclectic-subdued metallics, while techno splatter prints suggested an extended Richard's ecstasy trip.
