Helmut Lang Pre-Fall 2014

Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, I do. When I initially laid my eyes on the opening look of Helmut Lang Pre-Fall 2014, I told myself: I need to feature this.

Sometimes, a collection is not so much about textures, or even innovations, but simply silhouettes. By staying monochromic, designers Nicole and Michael Colovos really gave rise to the outlines of this collection. There is an interweaving element of both masculinity and femininity across all the looks. Pieces like blazers and jackets define the strong side, while techniques like draperies and side-slits soften it up.

Needless to say, the styling is light and simple. I especially adore the slip-on oxfords and the absence of jewelries. Everything works so well together that the definition of minimalism is perfectly fitting here.
