Helmut Lang Fall 2011 Collection, designed by Nicole and Michael Colovos'MO was genius, and one of my seasonal favorites. Every single piece in the collection is live-able, wearable, and utilitarian, clothing that could establish a wardrobe. The collection was inspired by the Cutting Table, a painting on aluminum by the contemporary artist Jaap de Vries. I also saw correlations in the collection's styling and somber staging to Sweden's; The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, currently opening in the United States, and the re-surgance of Gothic and utilitarian cuts in both styles and clothing. Deconstructed, uneven hems, raw seams, wool, fitted leather moto-jackets, & metal embroideries. The color palate consisted of bone white, dark blacks in both leather & fur, neutral greens and grey shades. There was a brief showing of a gorgeous cow-esque print, and a faded plaid, giving character and life to the collection. Asymmetrical cuts and military-esque tailoring was also present. Skinny and drop-crotch pants, and maxi skirts were all seen as silhouettes. The collection was shown on one pristine, pale, model, with jet-dark hair and a straight boys bowl cut. Motorcycle boots were the footwear of choice for all pieces, and the shoot was free of makeup. Helmut Lang's collection was genius and refreshing for Fall & Winter 2011 // 2012.
