Following a special January release, fashion brand Helmut Lang has introduced the latest instalment of its new Artist Series collection.
This time around, the label has turned to American artist Carrie Mae Weems for inspiration and a new collaborative offering.
Using pieces from Weems’ Kitchen Table series, Helmut Lang has produced a new line of T-shirts and posters – the Helmut Lang’s Artist Series: Carrie Mae Weems collection.
Helmut Lang’s official statement says Weems is the “first African-American woman to receive a Guggenheim retrospective, with around 50 solo exhibitions to her name” and has a career spanning more than three decades.
“From 1989 to 1990, Weems began the daily ritual of photographing herself at her kitchen table, depicting her story as a woman through the conduit of its featured cast: her daughter friends, lover.”
“The series became a benchmark for female artists owning their representation.”
The T-shirts and posters in the collection are available for purchase from the official Helmut Lang website, and 15 per cent of all proceeds will go to the Social Studies 101 charity.
In March, luxury retailer Saks Fifth Avenue highlighted Helmut Lang’s clothing in a streetwear-centric Hypebeast editorial.
