Creative Designers Michael and Nicole Colovos (co-founders of Habitual) have advanced Helmut Lang to be the epitome of New York minimalism. Their edgy leather pants, sculptural draped silk tops and striking foil-print dresses have left us speechless this season. Even more so than Fall 09 when we first laid our eyes on the Moleskin Motorcycle jacket, one should always have a Helmut Lang jacket in their closet. Upon first hearing in 2005 that Lang was leaving the company we were more than apprehensive about the brands fate but this design duo managed to succeed at maintaining the brand’s modern, minimalist roots while stamping it with their own point of view. Thus making it a must have for every girl's closet (three of them being us and Chelsea Handler).
This season Nicole and Michael Colovos were inspired by the terms erosion and decay. Their efforts offer up a deconstruction of denim and edgy silhouettes all while combining street edge, minimalism, and femininity.
