Helmut Lang has long been one of my favourite labels for the casual elegance, the gritty leather jackets with shearling and fur trim and the minimalism that is both elegant and cool.
This season the collection had all that and more. Tailoring in “blistered” leather, shaggy fur added to leather jackets (my favourite being in assymetric white) and gorgeously slouchy sweaters to get lost in this coming winter.
The point of difference were the splashes of colourful patterns. The colour palette was predominantly black but the white and burghundy touches are emerging as a consistent trend at NYFW.
