I’m so excited. Fashion house Helmut Lang is opening its first dedicated European store in London on 1 September. Although the eponymous Austrian-born designer no longer works for the brand (he left in 2005 and two years later husband and wife team Michael and Nicole Colovos relaunched the label to much praise), the clothes have lost none of their sexy/edgy minimalist androgyny. In fact, I might even go so far as to say that I prefer the AW11 line (my favourites looks are below) to everything that has come before it. What delicious blasphemy.
The Helmut Lang dedicated store will open on 1 September in
London’s Westbourne Grove.
