Helmut Lang

Helmut Lang launched his eponymous label in 1986, taking an unconventional approach to the branding and design of his fashion company.  His original approach to design, often associated with his iconic use of bondage and flight jackets still serves as in inspiration to contemporaneous designers.  Today, Helmut Lang stands out not only for its uniquely inspired design but also its specifically sourced fabric from some of the preeminent mills in both Japan and Italy.  Lang left his label in 2005, but head designer Alexandre Plokhov (best known for his label Cloak with Robert Geller) now continues to innovate and create while staying true to the spirit and legacy of Lang himself.
