Copenhagen-based label HELIOT EMIL has presented its Fall/Winter 2021 collection entitled “Unstable Equilibrium” at Paris Fashion Week. To explore the notion between balance and imbalance, the designer Julius Juul experimented with asymmetry and different materials.
HELIOT EMIL’s Fall/Winter 2021 designs follow the brand’s signature dark palette selection with some occasional muted neutral tones like gray, stone, and cream. Asymmetry and disunity are achieved through asymmetrical tailoring, slim cuts, and layering of textured fabrics such as nylon, leather, and wool. The standout from this collection is the overlaid black blazer that’s joined with a think cut-out vest. This layering covers only the right side while leaving the left exposes to show off the intricate layers with an exposed arm. This blazer is finished with a razorblade-shaped metal logo plaque on the collar – the asymmetrical work is interwoven to create a bold contrast between unstable balances. Another noteworthy piece is a leather jacket with a high collar that doubles as a face mask. The technical lineup is complete with metallic zippers, buckles, and carabiners.
Elaborating on this collection, Juul commented, “I like to see it as something that we call industrial elegance. I hope people will see something new, different and interesting.”
