Helmut Lang often reimagined otherwise mundane articles of clothing. He brought them into his world through minimalistic alterations that ultimately perfected them. In the late 90s, Helmut’s embellishments were often straightforward in both form and process. Many of his basics during this time would be adorned with a simple stripe from one end to the other, which in a sense both recognized and accentuated the proportions of the silhouette.
