After walking away from his namesake label in 2005 to become an artist, the Helmut Lang legacy remains one to revere. As one of the first designers to present a runway show online in 1998, his minimalist design aesthetic, use of cutting edge fabrics and technology have garnered a devoted following of fans and enthusiasts enamored by the modern and effortless edge of his designs.
In tribute to his influence, renowned vintage retailer Resurrection is rolling out an archival Helmut Lang assortment, featuring collectible runway and ready-to-wear apparel and accessories.
Resurrection co-owner Katy Rodriguez, recently spoke with Vogue on surging interest a of late in Lang’s design, “Over the last five years or so the interest in Helmut Lang has just quadrupled. Everyone is really, really interested in his work, and not just designers and stylists but young people, especially. With people like Raf Simons being very popular and other creatives of that next generation who get young people to look back and love that stuff from the ’90s and the early ’00s, Helmut is becoming more and more popular.”
Helmut Lang archival pieces are now available at Resurrection Vintage New York (45 Great Jones Street) and Resurrection Vintage Los Angeles (8006 Melrose Avenue), along with the store’s online shop: resurrectionvintage.com.
