Following a special January releaseHelmut Lang has introduced the latest installment of the brand’s new Artist Series collection. This time around, the famed label turns to Carrie Mae Weems for inspiration and a new collaborative drop. Utilizing pieces from Weems’ Kitchen Table series, Helmut Lang has produced a new live of t-shirts and posters.

As Helmut Lang’s official statement notes, Weems stands as the “first African-American Woman to receive a Guggenheim retrospective, with around 50 solo exhibitions to her name” and boasts a career spanning more than three decades.

“From 1989 to 1990, Weems began the daily ritual of photographing herself at her kitchen table, depicting her story as a woman through the conduit of its featured cast: her daughter friends, lover,” reads Helmut Lang’s breakdown of today’s line. “The series became a benchmark for female artists owning their representation.”

You can take a look at Helmut Lang’s Artist Series: Carrie Mae Weems collection above. The pieces are available for purchase at the official Helmut Lang website, and 15% of proceeds will go to the Social Studies 101 charity.

Back in March, Saks Fifth Avenue spotlighted Helmut Lang for a streetwear-centric editorial.
