Showroom Appointment: Helmut Lang

Last week we took you inside Prabal Gurung’s New York showroom—this week we’re heading less than a mile away to Helmut Lang‘s light-filled headquarters, where our via C buyer, Cheri Dublinski, examines the spring collection.


“I really liked the clean, straight lines of the new collection,” Cheri says. “These pieces are simple and easy to wear, and they’re made with interesting details or fabrics.”

Cheri snaps fit models wearing various pieces from the new collection. This helps her keep track of the garments she’s thinking about buying.

As we saw on the runway, creative directors Nicole and Michael Colovos used lots of perforation and leather for spring.

Silhouettes were loose and relaxed.

“There’s something for everyone in this collection,” Cheri says.

Stay tuned for more updates from the showrooms as our buyers make their spring selections.

In the meantime, check out our runway photos and front-row photos from Helmut Lang’s spring 2014 show.
