You may not have heard of this design duo yet, but Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg have. They were part of a committee that selected Weiland and Eckstein (who co-helm the Timo Weiland brand) for the CFDA incubator program — a prestigious honor previously held by the likes of Prabal Gurung and Sophie Theallet — and an outline of their busy lives couldn’t be more indicative of their on-the-cusp status, from rubbing elbows with the doyenne of downtown fashion herself, Mrs. von Furstenberg, to spinning their favorite rock hits (from punk to glam) at the Jane Hotel’s rooftop for a weekly DJ gig.
We asked the two, who share a common admiration for Dries Van Noten (“always an ongoing love and inspiration”) and are rarely apart, to chronicle a typical Thursday for us with a few candid camera phone snaps. Here’s what we got!
