I like that tangerine orangey colour.

This doesn't seem like the lines we've seen in recent seasons; something's different. More feminine? And more structured?

ITA on everything you said!

Somebody should PLEASE fire these people or rather sell the Helmut Lang brand rights to someone who would actually have a better understanding of the aesthetics this house stood for. This rivals Milan Vukmirovic's take on Jil Sander from the early 2000's in cruelty.

I'm saying the orangy colour is baby peach. I liked it too

I agree also, more structured - more gio. Less asymmetric. And also a touch less sportif. I liked the initial minimal palette generally. And the wetness. And the minimal close frontedness. Including when deconstructed via biker motifs. (The biker trend really does have long long legs). That also bled out into some geisha shapes (if you like, in the way of Proenza).

Via some of those ways it was still Lang. Toward the end a grungier turn looked promising - the sihouette was still easy and relaxed. But then I struggled really to understand the four florals that turned to close.

Some good points though, a nice vibe to it - soft, cheery but still a bit of slouchy 'tude as well.
