Helmut Lang “Logo Hack” Spring/Summer 2019 Collection
Moving into ss19, Helmut Lang recently tapped New York-based, Russian-American multimedia artist Slava Mogutin and his director Jan Wandrag for a new collaboration.

Expanding on the Los Angeles label’s offerings, the seasonal range sports attention to functionality expressed via plenty of pull-tabs, zippered compartments and weather resistant fabrics.
