Familiarity and Newness Come Together in Helmut Lang's SS22 Collection

Featuring utility-focused suits inspired by luggage at airports.

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, Helmut Lang has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2022 collection inspired by themes of familiarity and newness. This time around, the brand — which labels itself “designerless” — has showcased the range with an art installation by South Korean creative Maia Ruth Lee.

Based on images of luggage at airports, the garments feature utility-focused details make using materials like rope and mesh. These details are spotted on a mustard yellow dress with a twisted halter neck, loosely woven crossbody bags and multi-pocketed trousers. The tech-influenced pieces are paired with tailored jackets and straight-legged trousers.

“If I no longer go to an office, why do I need a suit?” the label notes in a FAQ section of its press release. “The suit as we know it has been around for a long time. It predates modern office culture… A suit is still the easiest way we know of to communicate that you have made an effort,” the response reads. “Finally, we propose not just a classic suit but also a flight suit.” In addition to suits styled with asymmetrical tops, the collection further explores utility on a pleated skirt with bulky pockets and a matching jumper.
