For Spring/Summer ’15 Hellen shows a collection loosely inspired by the intricate draping of Madame Grès. Another element the garments are inspired by is a study of light cast from different angles through symmetrical cuts in paper and the shadow effects created as a result of this game of light/shadow. All these different inputs will be evident in the use of layering, the play with transparency and the different textures in the garments.
