Helmut Lang retrospective book set. This two volume photographic archive biography provides an insight into Helmut Lang, exploring his designs between 1986 to 2005. This is a set of two books that captures some of the worlds best Helmut Lang collections and pieces, provided by fans of the Austrian born designer. Each piece was meticulously styled and photographed over several months to showcase the archive pieces at their best. Pieces from Helmut Langs archive are often difficult to find, after the legendary designer destroyed over 6,000 items in 2011. Since the 1980s, Helmut Lang has been known for his simple, pared-down aesthetic and deconstructivist approach to clothing design, through which he has taken sharp silhouettes and cutting edge fabrics to a new level of refined minimalism. Cummerbunds morph into ties, which in turn melt into elbow-length gloves; shirts and tank tops are reduced to their pure, skeletal forms; skirts are stripped bare to single bands of fabric. Each category of clothing is represented and then reduced, to its architectural core. Image after image a narrative emerges, one in which forms become more sophisticated by a process of reduction. As Helmut Lang once said in an interview, it is simplicity as complexity distilleda revelation of a basic architecture beneath every garment, and a common, core vocabulary behind a vast collection of clothing.
