It might be storming and gloomy every other day here in Singapore, but in the world of fashion, Spring 2018 has officially arrived. The perpetual drop of the season’s fresh new campaigns are solid reminders of that. Headed by Shayne Oliver, Helmut Lang made ripples when it unveiled its Re-Edition campaign featuring a swatch of the house’s eclectic self-proclaimed fans. Front and centre: Kanye West.
If you’re still not feeling the warmth yet, look no further from the fashion cognoscenti of New York. As the metropolis city was hit with a massive snowstorm, the likes of Eva Chen and Leandra Cohen brought out their chic, element-proof ensembles for a day out in the freezing cold.
From the layer-wrapped, poker-faced Kanye to Beverly Hills’ Golden Globes black-wearing army, here are the ’Grams you shouldn’t miss this week.

Helmut Lang roped in Exactitudes — the Dutch photography duo who inspired Demna Gvasalia’s Fall 2017 stereotype troupes — to capture their Re-Edition collection, modelled by the likes of Kanye West and Solange.

“Have you heard? Off-White is launching a ‘more affordable’ capsule collection consisting of T-shirts and hoodies with prices starting at $95. ‘Off-White can be luxury at a traditional luxury price point, or equally it can be relevant at an affordable price point,’ designer Virgil Abloh said.”
Also in the Big Apple, Leandra Cohen aka Man Repeller braved subzero temperature in her Jackie O-inspired ski mask and peach Saks Potts overcoat.
