Louise Bourgeois photographed by Bruce Weber for a Helmut Lang campaign. Lang said he didn’t care if she wore any of his clothing but he made this little crown for her and gave it to Bruce Weber to see if she might want to wear it.

The Cool SchoolParis – Helmut Lang’s signatures are street chic and fashion provocation, and he demonstrated both of them with great panache in his spring show on Thursday. The word “Dragonfly” turned up on the credit list and after an opening of layered pieces with an athletic undercurrent, came the insects’ startling flight, full of colourful iridescent and metallics. Here, Lang’s looks for the coolest girls in school: vivid party dresses under elongated tanks.
