Arbitrage NYC is back with its second Archival Helmut Lang Collection
Arbitrage NYC is back with its second archival Helmut Lang collection, which includes 30+ pieces of the rarest Helmut Lang on the market. This season features some really amazing OG Lang jackets with bondage straps, Helmut Lang painter jeans, and even sample runway pieces. We sat down with founder Ian Campbell last April to tell us about Arbitrage and its 1st collection, you can check out that interview here. Below is a statement from Campbell about his second release that is slated to come out this Sunday at 9pm eastern time.
"I have been looking forward to doing another release like this since our first one back in April. Some of the best pieces in the collection have been sitting in storage for months and I've been dying to get them out there, so it was great to get the team back together and make another look book.
The collection itself is definitely a step of from last season. You can expect over 30 pieces of archival Helmut Lang including plenty of Bondage details, pre-production samples and even some pieces that are still brand new with tags over a decade later.
My favorite piece from the look book is the AW 2003 sample leather bomber. It's one of only a handful, possible only 2, ever made. The other one I know of lives with Michael Kardamakis of ENDYMA.com. He has his featured in his Helmut Lang showroom, along with some other crazy stuff, so go check his site and his social media out too!
The collection is slated to release around 9pm EST on Sunday (October 16th) on arbitragenyc.com ." - Founder Ian Campbell
