More details about Helmut Lang’s FW24 collection at New York Fashion Week 2024
Titled “Protection vs. Projection,” Helmut Lang’s FW24 collection at New York Fashion Week 2024 offers lacking defensive mechanisms—face shields, cocooning zippers, waterproof hoods, and bulletproof materials. As highlighted by the fashion label, one never know when they might need them.
Helmut Lang brings peace of mind to a world where there is so much anarchy and doubt. Peter Do, creative director, filled in that system gap for Fall/Winter 2024 with an ensemble that prioritizes safety without compromising style.
Items in the “Protection vs. Projection” collection exclude any kind of protective gear, such as face shields, bulletproof fabrics, waterproof hoods, or cocooning zippers. Because in this modern world, their usefulness is always unpredictable.
Incorporating bulletproof additions, the new silk bubble-wrap fabric is fashioned into vests, bomber jackets, and pants.
Peter Do mentions that wool outerwear and padded nylon puffers contain protective headgear. The cushioning of knitwear is reminiscent of astronaut gear: incredibly protective and highly adaptive.
Zipped cashmere trousers, sweaters, and hoodies “reveal” and “constrict” the wearer’s figure. Footwear has been “galvanized” and “weaponized.” It is the designer’s belief that “predicting unpredictability” is the end goal.
No matter how daring the label is, the modern Helmut Lang vibe is still there in Do’s most recent creations.
Gowns are made of figure-flattering hosiery jersey and decorated with designs of Hong Kong’s iconic red, white, and blue bag. Denim, handmade leather, and jacquard knits are all included.
Bold lapel-like collars that spread out to adorn the collarbones as well as the faces of those who wear them are a feature of a number of leather coats. Do emphasizes “beauty” and “resilience” in this context.
