Helmut Lang x Anthony Vaccarello

Saint Laurent Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello has announced plans for an upcoming collaboration with legendary designer-turned-artist Helmut Lang. The collaboration between the two was revealed in an interview with Business of Fashion and focuses on Lang’s artworks, bringing the world of Saint Laurent to his brutal aesthetic.

Named “Helmut Lang x Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent Rive Droite,” the collaborative artworks feature leftover and unwanted Saint Laurent items and accessories that have been shredded by Lang. These scraps were then mixed with resin and transformed into large sculptures using aluminum molds.

By using items of clothing and accessories, the collaborative sculptures recall Lang’s own archive. After walking away from his namesake label in 2005, Lang then destroyed his personal by making “fabric confetti” of the pieces that had survived a 2010 fire.

The “Helmut Lang x Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent Rive Droite” sculptures will be exhibited at the Rive Droite location in Paris before heading to Los Angeles. All items will be available for sale.
