Function-Focused Spring Menswear

Technical Shapes Led the New HELIOT EMIL SS23 Collection

— October 4, 2022 — Lifestyle
HELIOT EMIL introduces its latest collection designed for the Spring/Summer 2023 season entitled Primal Substance and it is packed with form and function themes. The futuristic looks are utilitarian in a sense that nods to Bill Viola's artwork 'Martyrs Composite as Julius and Victor Juul explore how earth, fire, air, and water are impactful on the body.

To do this, it works with fabric manipulation and technology work through heat-reactive material, water resistance, and other nuanced details. Overall, the performance was packed with clean and confident looks that are true to the house's aesthetics in a unique way. AI techno set the way for denim pants and satin tops along with Alpinestars body suits along with a new structural bag.
