Helmut Lang
New York, December 8, 2011
By Nicole Phelps

Nicole and Michael Colovos tend to find inspiration for their Helmut Lang collections from little-known artists or obscure works, but their starting point for pre-fall just might be their strangest yet. "We have all these pictures of spiderwebs made by spiders on drugs," Michael explained. The LSD spider apparently spins really intricate webs, while the pot spider's creations have big holes in them. The caffeine spider's is the most erratic, and that's the one they settled on for their latest outing. It turned up as a tone-on-tone design on skinny jeans and as a burnout motif on a delicate, featherweight sweater.
