The Helmut Lang Resort 2012 collection has a distinctly avian appeal. The asymmetrical tunics and dresses feature superimposed feathered wings on the left side of the garment that look almost like X-ray images. Angled and rounded necklines, feathered shoulders and wispy, almost diaphanous fabrics gave each piece additional visual appeal.

The Helmut Lang Resort 2012 collection features fashion that's a bit more appropriate for autumn than summer. The line's muted palette of black, gray, brown and burned orange makes it hard to envision on a yacht or at a far-flung poolside cabana; nevertheless, these pieces would make a perfect addition to a fashionista's pre-fall wardrobe.

Do the avian influences in the Helmut Lang Resort 2012 collection appeal to you, or is this a line you'd rather forget about?
