As many of you may know, Helmut Lang was bought by Theory and two new designers were installed to take the place of Lang himself (who is now tending his garden and keeping chickens at his $25mil Long island mansion). Anyway, the new collection has been released and I was wondering if anybody had seen it yet, especially the classic Lang items like jeans and jackets and such? Anyway, I don't live near a place that carries the new collection, so I'm just curious to hear if others have seen it and if it is any better than I'm expecting (personally, I'm still bewildered by the thought that Lang without Lang is ever going to work or who their target demographic even is). From what I have heard, though, it's something like Theory only 30% more expensive, and with none of Lang's odd innovation. I'm also curious if they will still use Italian factories or if they will move the stuff to Theory's Chinese manufacturing.
