Helmut Lang AW14

Soft, oversized textures and trailing scarves emerge from curls of smoke and punk rock sounds

Initial reaction:

It's a pleasure to process looks that really speak through texture, especially when all of those textures are soft. 

Fall means fall:

The emerging silhouette for fall is an oversize coat with a slim pencil skirt and a boot or brogue with a chunky, 90s-style sole. It seems designers are acknowledging that women want to be able to move, and sometimes even move outdoors. Goodbye, heels!

Scarf tip from the runway:

Style a scarf as long as you are tall by tying it behind you, and letting the soft ends flop along behind you as you walk.

Pre-show Mystery:

Soft curls of smoke pouring out from backstage. 

Closing song:

X "Your Phone's Off The Hook, But You're Not", and an American punk rock song from the 1980s. Amusingly, the predicament described in the title is now technologically obsolete.
