While there's no denying the fun in wearing wild prints and Technicolor hues, sometimes less is more. For decades, Austrian brand Helmut Lang has lived by this rule, and the minimalism that its fall '13 collection serves up is no exception. Think leather moto jackets, streamlined silhouettes, and crisp button-downs, all within a muted-color palette of blacks, whites, and grays.
To keep the collection from feeling too monochromatic, there is a pronounced nod to cubism in the abstract, grayscale patterns that adorn several pieces. And with asymmetrical hems and leather details, Helmut Lang's staple edginess maintains a strong presence in the mix.
