Editor’s Notes: Master of minimalism Helmut Lang has dropped a lookbook for the new “Certified Pre-owned” collection, which sees a resale of authenticated vintage pieces from dedicated Helmut Lang fans.
This first instalment – containing pieces dating back as far as FW95 –comes from the private collection of Jim Walrod, a notable self-taught interior designer who worked with everyone from Richard Gluckman to Mike D of The Beastie Boys. A champion of contemporary, and largely under-appreciated art, Walrod is quoted as saying that when it came design, “time is the only critic that matters.”
