Runway Looks We Love: Helmut Lang
Designer: Helmut Lang
Location: Pace Gallery
What was it like: A gallery environment with an open center where models could walk freely without the restraint of a runway. The set was formed with plexi and white light columns.
Why I love this collection: The collection was an exercise in modern minimalism. Each look captured a cool and slouchy aesthetic, in large part due to crisp, sharp lines. In particular, the sheer silk organza looked beautiful, especially with minimalist tailoring. New to the brand was a line of handbags that debuted on the runway, which ranged from bonded and perforated leathers to textural skins.
