You will find Helmut Lang
on Saks Fifth Avenue's new contemporary floor, but you won't find its designers, Nicole and Michael Colovos, on the party circuit. "We don't go out very much; we stay focused on our work," the duo said as they presented their Fall collection in their clean white studio. The clothes belied the Colovos' alleged homebody status. For starters, the designers took color inspiration from Marlene Dumas, the South African painter whose work was recently seen at MoMA. There were also on-trend pieces such as distressed denims (recalling the couple's personal and professional grunge phases), zippers galore, and plenty of cocoon-y toppers. These looks would cut a figure whether you're out on the town or staying closer to home.
