HELMUT LANG LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN BY HUGO COMTE
Helmut lang has collaborated with hugo comte on a womenswear campaign. The paris-based photographer has applied his distinctive vision to the helmut lang suiting assortment in both fall and resort collections.
Vol. 1: a/w 2022 collection
For the fall collection images, comte felt it was important to the cultural moment to produce a campaign featuring powerful women in suiting, a silhouette traditionally designated to men, which represents the authority of the wearer.
Transgender twins margo and madelyn whitley, embody a powerful femininity in these images. In addition to modeling, margo and madelyn advocate for self-expression and acceptance surrounding gender identity and fluidity, fashion-related or otherwise.
The identical twins face each other, creating a mirroring effect among different scenarios featuring; obscured glass, flying newspaper, a slinky, and at times mimic each other’s gestures. The twins remain autonomous, powerful, and statuesque despite the unexpected scenes surrounding them – leaving the viewer to imagine the action preceding and proceeding.
