After showcasing the militaristic, technical looks in its Fall/Winter 2018 lookbook, HELIOT EMIL hit the runway at Copenhagen Fashion Week to exhibit the full collection.
The monochrome looks offered a range of buckled, zipped and strapped layers, accented with the label’s “HE” branding and monogram seen on T-shirts, pants and even belt buckles. Dubbed ‘Intended Consequences,’ designer Julius Juul took cues from the French expression “L’appel du vide” — “the call of the void” — which touches on the attraction of undermining one’s own self. Indeed, the “feeling of intentionally wanting negative impacts,” according to the brand, inspired the monochrome colors and futuristic fabrics, including a heat sensitive blend that changes color from black to white. Off-kilter sewing techniques further accent the collection’s asymmetry and subversion of militaristic tropes, like silver padlocks attached to belt loops and menswear staples, like blazers, executed in unconventional Japanese-manufactured fabrics.
