Helmut Lang, born in 1956 in Vienna, is not only my personal hero – he was (and is) the master of modern fashion. He changed our perspective to look at, to feel and wear clothes. Designer always took inspiration from his anticipated nineties shows but more than ever before we can see his influence of modernism on the catwalk all over the world. Lang stepped back from his role at his own house and concentrated on art in 2005. Vogue.com in collaboration with the Helmut Lang Studio brings back some of his outstanding shows.
Looking through the shows from 1998 to 2000 sum up how important his creations have been for that time. If you would take the same clothes and show those in Paris with nowadays it-girls noone could tell that these clothes have been designed more than a decade ago.
Helmut Lang shaped the fashion world forever. His designs that were both beautiful and wearable at the same time made fashion accessible for everyone. His eponymous effort to create a modern uniform made him one of the most important designers and made his fashion live forever.

THIS SEASON, MORE THAN ANY SEASON BEFORE, I WANNA BE A GIRL IN RODARTE’S FASHION FORCE!
Kate and Laura Mulleavy may be the only dreamers left within the money making machine called FASHION. For the 10th anniversary of their brand they went back to the roots and showed us a beautiful collection of fantasy heroines with ruffled leather, flower jewellery, and embellished lace. They designed a uniform for the Jedi 2.0 in all of us – the only thing we have to decide, is on which side we are fighting! PS: Did anyone else missed the fashion in Star Wars Force Awakens?

For a short stay in Copenhagen it’s perfect to you use their bikes for a city tour to explore all the beautiful corners such as Superkilen. Read More
Let’s be serious. We all love our Céline, Prada and Gucci but most of the time our credit card doesn’t and we have to search for good high street alternatives. H&M or Forever21 are shops that are really fast in covering latest trends and bring them to the mass for a fraction of the designer prizes. Zara was always the fastest retailer who was taking trends from the catwalk. Sure for true fashion lovers a visit at one of the stores was like browsing on Asian replica websites, but for the most of their customers around the world they sell cool and fashionable pieces to affordable prices.
Zara is reaching a big audience of fashion lovers all over the globe without even placing advertising in magazines or online. Always loved for their image work the latest campaign of the Spanish brand takes there aesthetic to the next level. Their new campaign featuring a strong new vision for both their male and female collection and is including short films as well. But not only the style and aesthetic the campaign is directed also the new pieces for the upcoming season are looking outstanding. Cool shapes and creamy colours are building a brand new Zara mood which is much stronger than their campaigns before. The new direction which comes along with a lot of lately changes within the fashion world (Alessandro Michele’s Gucci take over) is a strong sign that the world’s fastest fashion retailer is starting to set trends instead of only coping them.
