Think bold. Think strong. From the king of the modernists, Helmut Lang, comes a shiny suit with a sash in revolutionary red.

These are clothes for the modern woman who demands more than simplicity and comfort - she wants clothes that make a statement. Styling by Philippa Duck. Photographs by Desmond Muckian
