Lang’s layering inspiration

In many ways Helmut Lang’s spring 2012 collection epitomised all we’ve come to love about sporty fashion in 2012: sleek, functional, minimal yet chic for its asymmetrical details. The collection look book doesn’t just showcase those sporty pieces, it demonstrates another of their strengths: the ability to make them a base for spring layering. Away from the runway, sporty crop tops don’t need to be reserved for days when you’re showing off midrif. Helmut Lang’s diagonal sports-bra straps peeping out from under wrap dresses, sweaters and blazers are evidence enough of that.

The look book was photographed by Daniel Jackson and stars Emily Baker.
