Katlin Aas for Helmut Lang

It can be a drag to cover-up tattoos, take out piercings, and remove wedding rings for shoots and shows. So Helmut Lang just earned some brownie points with us.

Katlin Aas shot the complete Pre-Fall lookbook and her piercings and tattoos made the cut! 

Style.com noticed this too:

[Her tattoos and piercings] nicely complements the navy pieces in the mostly black and white line. With multiple catwalkers (such as Daiane Conterato) getting their cartilage pierced [...] the army of monotonous fashion robots that used to rule the runways seems to be steadily dissolving.

"Robots" might be pushing it, but we certainly agree that little details of self-expression can definitely add flavour to a collection.
