Helmut Lang, a pioneer of luxe minimalism in the '90s, became known for his trademark draping, sharp cuts, and unusual fabric pairings, which made his label a uniform favorite among the fashion-forward creative set. Relaunched in 2007 without its legendary namesake at the helm, Helmut Lang still maintains the pared-down, cutting-edge spirit that first put the label on the map. 2012 also brought an exciting new contemporary line, Helmut by Helmut Lang, which features the label's most popular silhouettes, rendered in their signature jersey.
Nothing screams warm-weather chic quite like denim and stripes, and these designer picks deliver the perfect dose of classic Americana cool: Think dark-wash skinnies, made-to-flatter flares, and faded jackets, plus striped tees, cardigans, and sheath dresses for a mix that never goes out of style.
If your wardrobe is still missing that perfectly versatile jersey dress, now's the time to stock up. And get this — buy one now, and you’ve got a flattering, go-to piece to wear absolutely everywhere once summer rolls in. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite riffs on the classic staple, from printed caftans and draped minis to racerback maxis and twisted-shoulder shifts.
Ostrich satchels, python pumps, and more bold accents with a luxurious bite.
Statement-making minimalism is the concept behind Helmut Lang, and that same theme carries through to the brand’s new contemporary line. Referencing its big sister label's hottest silhouettes, Helmut by Helmut Lang showcases luxe basics, with plenty of the signature twists we’ve come to love: Think tailored-to-perfection tees and tanks in barely-there jersey knits; classic black dresses and skirts with sharp, asymmetrical hemlines and well-placed cut-outs; and ultra-soft draping where you’d least expect it (collarless blazers, one-button jackets, and cropped trenches).
