Fashion designers tend to get inspiration from interesting places, objects, and art. However, Michael and Nicole Colovos’ latest Pre Fall collection inspiration has been one of the most creative yet: spiders on drugs. Their inspiration for their fabulous collection came from spiderwebs spun from spiders on drugs, such as LSD, marijuana, and caffeine. The web design of the caffeine drugged spider made its way into the collection and onto pieces, such as the printed maxi dress, sweater and skirt separates, an asymmetrical top, and other pieces. This print was paired with classic black, as well as bold hues of green. Other colors infused in this great collection were neutral tones, such as taupe, white, and grey. The designing couple cleverly put bursts of lime green into the collection, giving the contemporary looks a beautiful color block twist.
Standout pieces included the asymmetrical leather jackets and skirts, as well as the cutout sweaters. And a Helmut Lang collection wouldn’t be the same without signature pointed shoulders, showcased on structured blazers, and paired with black and white wash skinny jeans. Helmut Lang collections can be shopped online at www.helmutlang.com, as well as in stores such as Neiman Marcus, located in downtown Dallas.
