That is what everyone (who's anyone) in the fashion industry is pushing for since the dawn of the return for the love of anything Helmut Lang. I even doubt that the appreciation for Helmut Lang, with its simplified aesthetics done in a wearable urban couture direction ever went way.
Helmut Lang SS2004: Metallic Dresses by Juergen Teller
I especially love Helmut Lang, but owning just one (a pair of black trousers) wouldnt say i love it... maybe i appreciate it or or OR i just couldnt afford it now lol
I vow to own as much Helmut Lang as i could! Hopefully in the near future! (praying to the fashion gods)
Helmut Lang FW 2010
Helmut Lang the brand is known for its simple, elegant and urban designs. It is without a doubt, that HL will influence even the next decade. As a backgrounder, Helmut Lang (the designer) re-introduced the Narrow and Tailored suit for Menswear in the 80s even before Hedi Slimane for Dior. He introduced layering of transparent fabrics in new materials and fabrics, the wet look, the paper dresses, thermal fabrics, the body-con dress, extremely shiny fabrics, streetstyle couture, couture sportswear ALL in the 90s.

TOPSHOP in turn gives us plenty of reason to follow the cult of Helmut Lang again with its Spring Summer 2011 pieces amply named NEW AGE CONSTELLATION.
The New Age Constellation Line primarily focused on Whites, Jersey Draped Dresses, Transparent Overlays, Transparency, Graduations, Long + Short, Ombres and Ombre Hair. With all of this features, it gives the mix of Urban and androgynous artistic Club Kid style a well deserved TLC.
Here are some of the photo stills from the NEW SS2011 pieces of TOPSHOP enjoy! (i especially loved the color part. That subtle splash of graduated orange and pink AND with the ombre hair with neon tips... simply gorgeous)
