Tim Hamilton To Show Women’s!


With so many womenswear labels recently adding men’s collections to their repertoires— Roland Mouret, Gareth Pugh, Matthew Williamson, Gianfranco Ferré, to name a few—we suppose it was only a matter of time that there would be movement in the opposite direction. Now, one of New York’s favorite menswear talents, Tim Hamilton, tells us that he will be showing a capsule women’s collection for Fall 2009 with a presentation during Paris fashion week. “It’s not just going to be sized-down versions of the men’s stuff,” he explains. Instead, Hamilton, inspired by his mother’s avant-garde, all-black look and mid-century postmodernism, has put together a small selection of looks that range from a Grecian gown that echoes the architectural lines of Josef Hoffman to sharp-shouldered jackets paired with jodhpur-esque pants. The samples, which Hamilton spent three weeks in Japan and Italy perfecting, arrive at the end of the month. For the presentation, Hamilton also whipped up a small selection of shoes, which, though he hasn’t yet decided whether they’ll be produced for retail, he assures us will knock our Wolfords off.
