The series of photos, shot by Exactitude founders Ari Versus and Ellie Uyttenbroek, stars 12 Helmut Lang fans, most notably including Kanye West and Solange Knowles. The multi-generational lineup of collectors wears their own personal archival pieces from the brand along with pieces from Helmut Lang Re-Edition, a newly-launched capsule collection featuring curated pieces from the brand archives. The full lineup, from the top left row, includes Jimmy Grillo, Alison Marie Isbell, Yohana Lebasi, Grace Lee Gee, Kanye West, Dominik Halas, Solange Knowles, Eric Lawrence, Rhamier Auguste, Johnny Petrozzino, David Gagliardi, and Anna Santangelo. Fans of Helmut Lang (Kanye and Solange included) are known to avidly collect timeless pieces from the brand’s collections—making the photo project for a cool way to celebrate that unique component of the brand. West, for example, wears his own Helmut Lang archive jeans along with a new hooded parka and sweater from the Re-Edition Volume 1 collection. Helmut Lang Re-Edition Volume 1 is now available to shop in stores and online at helmutlang.com, while Volume 2 will be available starting February 6.
