"Game of Thrones" inspires ... a high fashion line?



Helmut Lang has debuted a line of clothing directly inspired by HBO's lavish fantasy series "Game of Thrones," set to return for its second season on April 1.

It may seem counter-intuitive, considering just how many memorable moments from the first season of the series, based on the novels by George R.R. Martin, involved characters in stages of undress. But the vaguely medieval look of the Seven Kingdoms had made its way across the Sunset Sea to New York for Fashion Week.

Helmut Lang's creative directors Nicole and Michael Colovos admit to using the fantasy series as an inspiration for the current set of clothes.

The line, which appeared on the runway this week, features enough boots, leggings and leather to qualify for a decent armor class (for the RPG players out there).

After being off the air for close to a year, "Game of Thrones" will return to HBO with 10 new episodes in the spring, adapting the second book in Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series titled "A Clash of Kings."

With filming taking place across several different countries -- including a glacier in Iceland for the second season -- the series provides ample opportunity to see a wide range of garments, with the colder weather options reflected in Helmut Lang's fall-winter collection.

When it comes to urban fashion this fall, it's not such much a question of haute couture as Hodor couture.

OMG!.. Could I afford this?

I like the term "smallclothes" tbh. I think it's pretty cute.

"Sweetling" creeps me out a little though, ngl.

I had no idea this line was inspired by game of thrones but I really liked it.
rainbowchelita 17th-Feb-2012 01:29 am (UTC)
Do you know where to find more pictures?.. I'm dying with these and i need to fantasize with more clothes i cannot afford!
when_itsizzles 17th-Feb-2012 01:54 am (UTC)
Someone replied before I did, but either way, these pieces won't start retailing until fall. And you are looking at upwards of 300 for a blouse- not cheap.

But I feel you. My fave designer's line starts in the 700 dollar range.
wonderwomanhero 17th-Feb-2012 01:13 am (UTC)
I'd love some sort of Melisandre inspired gown, or maybe a dress like Cersei's.
rainbowchelita 17th-Feb-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
Cersei is always flawlessly dressed.

Though we have to consider that Melli's dresses wouldn't be as high couture as Cersei's but it would me a more affordable line ... Let's hope for it!
chicaintcheap 17th-Feb-2012 01:47 am (UTC)
I thought that the dress we saw Dany in for the s2 sneak peak was gorgeous.
zeonchar 17th-Feb-2012 01:14 am (UTC)
That girl on the right looks just like Dany!

On a similar note, the new Ralph Lauren collection was inspired by Downton Abbey.

Love that fashion designers are admitting that they are as obsessed as we are about these shows (re GOT and Downton Abbey).

I LOVE the dresses Sansa wears towards the end of season one to court. They're gorgeous.
rainbowchelita 17th-Feb-2012 01:45 am (UTC)
I need to see the rest of the collection... More long sleeves dresses please!!!!
shadowpiranha 17th-Feb-2012 01:18 am (UTC)
Shit I already want that cape thing, tbh. GOOD, WORLD, MORE SHIT I WANT BUT CAN'T AFFORD. KEEEEEEP ON ADDING TO THAT FUCKING LIST.
