Black and White and All Over.

The Helmut Lang woman is a woman of ease, free from the tyranny of style(at least from the mainstream). She is wrapped head to toe in white, taupes, and nudes, replacing the usual black color scheme. This is lighter side of her. Hint at her silhouette, she still has a dark side.

Precise cutting gives the minimal look. As usual, asymmetrical is taken up a notch. Here and there, neckline and waist is twisted. But just imagine all the fabrics! A blazer houses a chiffon lapel. Simple dresses are printed with a simple black and white stripe to give off a wring effect. Or maybe this is an updated modern, black and white tie-dye shirt. What's more? This collection is in keeping with the Helmut aesthetic (cuts are long and in wrong places). Overall, if someone is getting tired of the bright, flashy colors of Spring and Summer, she can always have a safety net into this collection.

I have been a admirer of the house, even after the man retired. I have been equally impressed and overwhelmed at the unusually heap amount of black in every collection. But here's more important: they still are able to carry on his legacy, his aesthetic, and his style.

The duo designer recently unveiled a new collection: handbags. The bags are clearly in keeping with the tone, done in soft tones of grey leather, in envelope shape, matching the woman.
