Helmut Lang Fall 2024 Collection Review


The Fall 2024 season of New York Fashion Week is officially in full swing. Yesterday, the fashion pack looked to Peter Do to open up the month-long fashion proceedings with his sophomore collection for Helmut Lang. For the Fall 2024 season, the designer dug into the archives, and used Lang’s Spring 2003 collection as a major point of reference. Do set his mind upon reimagining the famous bubble wrap jacket, in addition to the “Chinatown bag” print and Lang’s vibrant orange knits from the same season. Models like Kirsten Owen and Irina Shayk helped bring Do’s collection to life, parading through a gauze-covered show space, which was held on location at the historic Williamsburg Saving Bank.

Read below the reactions of theFashionSpot’s forum members:

“If someone told me this is an Alexander Wang show, I’d believe them. It’s very hard to understand that this show is worse than Do’s debut, it’s even more tortured and he still doesn’t have an eye for color. All the archival pieces were also too literal. At least now we know that Do is not that talented, and Helmut Lang as a brand is yet another zombie.” [perhydrol]

“The make up makes the whole thing feels oppressive rather than nonchalant. The demonic ghost of Demna’s Balenciaga is all over it. I have no words about the belts. And the clothes keep on being too literal or a weak interpretation of Lang’s work.” [Alquimista]

“The essence of Helmut Lang : BEING EFFORTLESS. The essence of Peter Do : TRYING HARD. It ain’t a match darling. Divorce will happen soon.” [IloveDiorHomme]

“This didn’t need a show.” [tourbillions]

“Peter bought a big industrial oven, put all the archival pieces in it and burned them all to the max temperature. When it cooled down, he scratched the fused remains; and with them he made this dirty and ugly mess of a collection…” [jeanclaude]

“I just hope the real Helmut Lang never sees any of this, what an insult to his work.” [liberty33r1b]
