PEOPLE OF HELMUT LANG

Helmut Lang has photographed a collective of people who are passionate about what they do for its latest campaign, ‘People of Helmut Lang.’ Photographed in New York City in the clothes that make them feel most like themselves—all those involved were encouraged to share their passions, and why they do what they do. They are our creative community. They are the people of Helmut Lang.

DEVIN B. JOHNSON, ARTIST

ASH OWENS, DESIGNER, TAILOR

In his debut, Peter Do set the foundation for a new system of dressing. The core silhouettes are the foundation for those in motion. The versatile, unisex tailoring, lightweight knits for layering and voluminous skirts and dresses are for real people, everyday—not only for special occasions.

“THE PERSON GIVES MEANING AND VALUE TO THE CLOTHES AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.”

 - PETER DO

FREDERI⏀UE THIOLLET, CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE PRACTITIONER

“I’m into cultivating prosperity in its purest form. My interests lie primarily in exploring new value systems that do not really exist based on our present understanding of success and profits, and in creating experiential fields and ritualistic formats that engage and superpose different modalities and disciplines.”


- FREDERI⏀UE THIOLLET

“I'm drawn towards mystery and movement. I approach filmmaking like a detective, immersing myself in obsessive research, poring over obscure details. The purpose is to communicate my own language of images through intuition and rhythm.”


- CONNOR SEN WARNICK

MINDY SEU, PROFESSOR, DESIGNER, AUTHOR

“It's a rare but beautiful moment when you stumble upon an idea and it consumes you—it inspires an obsessive rigor that is fueled by curiosity and it seems to connect to everything around you. Whether I’m writing, teaching, or performing, these are all outputs of that same source of curiosity.”


- MINDY SEU

STEPH SHIU, ARTIST, MUSICIAN, SOUND DESIGNER, MEDITATION TEACHER

“Whether it's through sound or a visual medium, I’m compelled to create as a way to anchor transcendental realizations collected from enlightened worlds into our tangible reality. Beyond ordinary perception exists a plethora of beauty and significance waiting to be unearthed.”


- STEPH SHIU

YAHDON ISRAEL, EDITOR

“Because the culture we live in makes it seem as though being intelligent and stylish are mutually exclusive--that we can be one or the other but not both. As an editor, whose labor and presence is largely invisible to the broader public, how I dress is an opportunity to expand what people believe is possible for themselves. My hope is that more people who may not think of entering publishing because it doesn't look cool, see that it can be.”
