This flagship store was created by Gluckman Mayner Architects, known for turning industrial spaces into art galleries, and it feels a little like an exhibition space. In the entrance area, a single display rack is surrounded by three giant black eagles.
Women's dresses are strictly for the avant garde; the more subdued tailored pants and jeans (up to $240) never go out of style.
Helmut Lang’s shoes are as sophisticated and elegant as his clothes. Sting ray pumps (from $300) or rough suede ankle boots with wooden heel (from $400). Matching bags and belts, too.
Men will find the occasional splash of color in these wildly coveted collections, but Lang's work is most striking in black and white. Check out the classic single-breasted overcoats for $1,200.
