Helmut Lang

We saw last catwalk of Austrian minimalists two years ago at fall-winter 2014 seasons. Later Helmut Lang brand was continuing work but without presenting at Fashion Weeks. Reason for this was quite trivial – there was a conflict between head management and creative team inside the company. Later the duet of creative directors, Nicole and Michael Colovos, leaved their positions. Since then the duties of head creative designer were on Katayone Adeli, who was an assistant of Herr Helmut Lang in the early 1990s. Adeli quit at the end of 2015. That’s why the collection that  will return Helmut Lang to world runway will be presented by the technicians team.

According to Instagram teaser, despite big changes Helmut Lang brand saved its own authentic style: simple shapes, monochrome color combinations, raw cut are the main accents of fall-winter 2016/17 collection. Helmut Lang’s esthetic is still minimalistic and androhynic like in 1990s, and basic principe is still the mix of quality of fabrics, comfort of using and elegance of simplicity.
