NOVELTY | Playing With Proportions

Photobucket

For this fall, Helmut Lang presented a few similar looks that consisted of a white long dress and a black jacket. By altering the lengths of the jackets and the skirts the same basic principle can be applied to different occasions. The longest dress drapes onto the floor and has the most luxurious and decadent feel to it, the shorter versions could be better classified as casual daywear. But the second look is my absolute favorite with the odd and unusual lengths while everything is still in perfect proportion.

I love how everything seems so alike, but so different! the varying lenghts do a whole lot for the impression you get from the outfit!

What a great collection! I agree that the second look is the coolest; I've been obsessed with asymmetrical hemlines lately.

each time Helmut lang comes out with new collection my admiration for him grows even more. His design features simplicity and interesting styling that is really unique. It's a pity though that he doesn't get recognition he deserves.

That's beautiful. I like those images and the idea of dressing around the same idea and aesthetic because I've been drawn towards doing the same thing lately.
