The Runway Sniper #08
Helmut Lang Fall Winter 2008/2009 Menswear
It seems comeback season is here! At least for me. I was googling thru the internet searching for pictures of the latest Helmut Lang collection and I was duly surprised at how much I am attracted to the menswear design. Clean, understated and yet sharply cut with interesting draping, collar details and exceptional choice of materials. With the closure of menswear at Miu Miu and Rykiel Homme, I applaud this new Helmut Lang arriving to the shores of Singapore! Thanks to Club 21's Blackjack store, we now have the chance to once again wear and enjoy the continuation of Helmut Lang's creative vision.
Michael and Nicole Colovos now heads the creative reins of this once respected and intellectual brand since the namesake designer left the brand. They retain the intellectually rigorous approach to fashion, while steering clear of slavish retread. Up until spring 2008, only small capsule collections were launched. So for fall winter another set of exceptionally appealing and urban sharp looks have been created. I look forward to checking out this new collection as the pics look really promising. It will be a departure from my usual D&G looks:-) I would love a change in style next season:-P For me, the first look with the draping collared hoodie, and the fifth look with the open collared sweatshirt is to die for!
