Editor’s Notes: For its current Spring/Summer 2021 capsule Helmut Lang is referencing some of the brand's former advertizing slogans as printed in the 1995 edition of cult fashion tome Visionaire.

At the time of publication Visionaire was known for not running any ads in its pages, however the mid-’90s "HYPE" issue satirized the burgeoning advertizing culture with numerous "ads" featuring tongue-in-cheek text such as Helmut Lang's assurance of being “the only company that loves you."

The "HYPE" issue of Visionaire, which also includes a "sex, sizzle, and saliva!" cover with ’60s German model Veruschka von Lehndorff, can still be picked up here for approximately $270.

The capsule prints the remaining phrases such as "HELMUT MADE ME DO IT," and "WEAR HELMUT LANG TO IMPRESS YOUR PARENTS" in bold black text across a range of casual staples i.e. tees, french terry cotton shorts, socks, sweatpants, beanies, and face coverings

The lookbook, captured by Ben Beagent in Dalston, depicts the referential pieces worn by a curated cast of London's young creatives and their friends. The imagery is accompanied by a few brief interviews to bring Helmut Lang's old slogans into the context of 2021.
