I remember this! What a great collection, and the models suit it so well, for some reason. A lot of this collection I'd wear today (well, tomorrow, technically, since I am in my p.j.'s :p). The yellow looks great, the ultra soft knits, and those coats with red or black stripes part way down. Beautiful.

Amazing how relevant this stuff is today. You literally see it everywhere.

How was this collection influential exactly?

definitely a great idea this as a proper topic. i think this was the first that really catapulted HL on a different plain,particularly his popularity increasing in america.....it got a lot of nice press. and it certainly changed my life for sure.

i always wanted one of those coats with the stripes...

it's sort of interesting how they remind me of Y-3 now...
although y-3 is always 3 stripes...and this was before Y-3 existed...

but the stripes are just very cool...
:p

I suppose the cut-outs were very influential, no? I'm not good with my fashion history.

The grey coat with the red stripes just stands out for me. It feels like a coat I could wear forever (obviously only when needed). The brand Helmut Lang is just not interesting any more.

If I remember correctly, the stripes were hand-painted. There was an instant "vintage" and worn vibe to this collection without ever being kitschy or theatrical. I just fell for it instantly when I saw it in the stores: the jackets in shiny, thick army-green nylon, the immaculately-cut nylon button-downs with the small mod-collar, the fine-jersey wool t-shirts with the floral-print, and the suits in fine nylon. Such an amazing collection that still holds up so strongly after all these years.

Thanks softgrey for giving this its own thread! The pretenders can see how it's really done by the master.

^actually i think they were spray-painted with stencils.

lola,his slashes were definitely influential. in fact it was he and Ann Demeulemeester who sort of revolutionised that....it spawned a lot of imitations across the fashion plain but it all came back to those two.
