At the helm of Helmut Lang, designer duo Nicole and Michael Covolos have demonstrated a perfect understanding of the brand’s DNA: “less is so much more”.
Standing out and apart from his contemporaries amid the bold eccentricities of 1980s fashion, Austrian designer Helmut Lang was instantly revered for his somewhat cleaner, sleeker aesthetic. Since 2005, Nicole and Michael Covolos have been successful in keeping the brand’s signature drapery, asymmetric hemlines and minimalist colour palettes relevant and contemporary. Helmut Lang remains a cult classic and go-to option for hip off-duty styles that transcend seasons and trends.
Helmut Lang masters the urban-chic look by creating wardrobe essentials with soft silhouettes for SS16. Lightweight cashmere tees offer an air of sensuality, while the dresses and blouses have an effortless sense of ease to them in their sweeping cuts and draped silhouettes. The floaty, deconstructed pieces are kept neutral in colour for a look that suits the concrete jungle. We’ll be wearing the boyfriend jeans with a relaxed tee for a laid-back attitude that’s true to the label’s look.
