NOVELTY | Playing With Proportions
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.
