Michael and Nicole Colovos are this fall following the logical path of doing graphical geometry and sharp cuts that have become Helmut Lang’s most significant features the past years. The common factor is the black and white prints, sometimes spiced with the complementary colours orange and blue, that are diluted with more monochromatic looks on the runway. The aim for innovation is obvious, the collection is like a workshop experimentation specially when it comes to textures, ranging from different leathers of shearling and ponyskin to different types of silk. But even though they pass in mentioned criteria, they fail in crafting an interesting silhouette, which on the contrary looks dated. Quite ironically, the look were more cohesive and modern two, three years ago. But the hope is not lost, no if one were allowed to cherry pick, the old silhouette and the new printing would be a great combination.
