"What I find modern is the balanced use of both traditional fabrics and new textiles," says Helmut Lang, whose balancing act for spring involves mixing cotton, wool, and leather with high-tech nylon, lacquered organza, and synthetics designed to reflect light. Equally important: the simple shapes that take on a sophisticated glamour, thanks to Lang’s futuristic fabrics. There are cigarette-thin pants, jackets cut as close as shirts, skinny shirts, fitted t-shirts and tank dresses. "It’s the idea of combining well-known quality with new surfaces that make them exciting," says the designer.
