IN FOCUS: HELMUT LANG SS19
E8 LOCALS

Helmut Lang has a rich history of shooting their campaigns on the every man, they fuse fashion with real people to tell stories. Most recently they re-visited their global Taxi Campaign to help the brand mark its two-decade NYC anniversary. Tired of the traditional model castings which seem old-fashioned and out of touch LN-CC wanted to celebrate its community showcasing local heroes in the ever-gentrifying London borough of Hackney. A snapshot in time we've featured Turkish restaurant workers and friends, Mehmet and Hakan, infamous Hackney girl Roxy, Gillett Square native, Paul and the best tailor in east London, Olwyn.
