Looking to the Future at Helmut Lang

It was all about innovative techniques this season for Nicole and Michael Covolos, the creative duo behind Helmut Lang. From rubber-treated fabric to laser-cut film, nearly every component in their Picasso-inspired collection was made with nontraditional techniques. So it comes as no surprise that the fall/winter 2013 show had a distinctly futuristic feel, replete with the couple’s self-described “sharp slouch” aesthetic.
