Peter Do took the reins at Helmut Lang in the summer of 2023, presenting his debut collection for the cult label last September.
There is likely no New York label more beloved and referenced—particularly today—than Helmut Lang, though Lang is actually Austrian and only moved his shows here mid-career. His Chinatown bag prints and jackets have been revisited by many, most famously Phoebe Philo at Céline, and his signature sinuous, sometimes tangled jersey tank tops have been reinterpreted by the likes of Telfar or Dion Lee.
Do himself often referenced Lang at his eponymous label, often citing him as one of his inspirations. Now a couple of collections in at Helmut Lang, Do has dusted off the house’s archives to recontextualize some of its greatest hits in his collections.
