It's hard to imagine what clothes the next few months will call for. Will the post-pandemic future be realized? Will we be back in the office, in the club, in the city? With so many questions at hand, Helmut Lang decided to cover all the bases. The Fall/Winter 2021 collection is versatile enough to handle anything; detachable sleeves allow these pieces to move across seasons, and they strike the perfect balance of elegant and utilitarian.

The brand's classic denim, leather, and jersey figure prominently among the materials used, but there's also an element of ski gear chic. Waterproof garments are as prepared for a getaway in nature as they are for a night out on the town. Minimalist silhouettes recall '90s fashion even as they feel futuristic and high-tech. Layering comes easily with this collection, so that dresses drape seamlessly over pants, enhancing the multi-use aspect of these clothes.

Trendy cutouts update timeless tailoring, and the strappy shoulders that have become popular across the board also make an appearance. Yet, these pieces seem to have a greater sense of permanence, beyond the ephemeral of-the-moment looks that dominate our Instagram feeds. Because of their seasonally customizable nature and their rootedness in the brand's '90s aesthetic, this collection feels more than ready to withstand the test of time.
