CLOTHES CALL: Helmut Lang has been cleaning out his closets — big time. The retired fashion designer just finalized two large donations from his vast archive. Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris is to receive 82 complete looks, including accessories, while the Kyoto Costume Institute will get 123 head-to-toe outfits. Lang’s team has been quietly fielding requests for donations over the past year to a range of top fashion, design and contemporary art institutions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Lang also remains active in the art world, and has finalized a commission for the Deste Foundation of Contemporary Art.
