New Brand Spotlight: Helmut Lang

Helmut Lang was born and raised in the Austrian Alps. At the age of 18, he began to teach himself clothing design. A few years later, he opened a made-to-measure shop in Vienna. In 1984 he closed the shop, and two years later showed his first runway collection in Paris at Centre Georges Pompidou.

His fashion house became famous in the late 1980s for its simple but refined designs. Once Lang moved to New York, he began using unconventional materials such as rubber, feathers, and metallic fabrics to redefine the silhouette of the 1990s and early 2000s. As one of the most important designers of our time, his work left an undeniable imprint on contemporary culture and his influence continues to reverberate among the fashion community today.

Lang's apparel collection for men and women focuses on refined and elegant pieces, such as slim suits in black or white, an exquisite denim collection, and the use of high-tech fabrics. Lang is known for his minimalist, deconstructivist, and often severe yet sophisticated designs.

Breathe new life back into your look with sleek jackets and fitted blazers from the Lang Men’s Collection. Polished button-ups pair perfectly with slim and modern denim. For a more casual look, the simple and chic tees pair seamlessly with stylish sweatshirts and hoodies.

The Lang women's collection offers a fresh and versatile take on fashion for any occasion. Featuring clean lines and chic concepts, from trendy jackets and skirts to sweaters and tops made for layering, you are sure to be on trend and turning heads.

Zappos Welcomes the “Do More with Less” Frog to the Box

In August 2014 a cute new friend made its first appearance on the iconic Zappos box. He’s the “Do More with Less” Frog, and his presence and message is to promote green thinking and sustainable behavior. He’s named after Zappos Core Value #5 – Do More with Less. You might even be reading this blog for the first time thanks to Frog! Woo hoo!

The new images of the “Do More with Less” Frog and the message of sustainability revolve around the “Three Rs” – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. At Zappos we understand that as our business grows so does our environmental footprint. We also know that our biggest environmental impacts are associated with our logistics – our boxes and our shipping practices.

Reduce – We realize that this is our job. We try hard to reduce the number of packages we send back and forth by offering features on Zappos.com to make sure you order right the first time. We also try to ship your footwear and apparel order in the right sized box. Sometimes when we’re operating at “ludicrous speed” (Spaceballs, 1987) we get it wrong and you receive a small item in a big box - we’re working on that.

Reuse – This is a chance for our customers to be creative and have fun with reusing our boxes. Have you ever used the box as a luxury lily pad like the “Do More with Less” Frog? Let us know the craziest way you’ve reused our box and send us a pic on Twitter (@ZapposLEAF)! We’ve also had discussions about whether or not returned boxes are fit to be sent out again. These discussions are healthy and lead to innovative ideas.

Recycle – We hope you’ll recycle your Zappos box once you’re finished with it. Cardboard is one of the most recyclable materials in the country and there is a flourishing market for it. If you’re currently an avid recycler – HIGH FIVE! If you’re not currently recycling, give it a try. If your neighborhood or apartments do not offer recycling, start that conversation with your neighbors.

As Zappos’ customer base grows, so does our potential to talk with many new friends about the impacts we all have on the world. We’re excited to Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication (Zappos Core Value #6) with you about your thoughts on the environment.

PS: Is the Frog a he or a she? LOL It is up to you to decide; all we know is that the Frog is pretty darn cute and has great eyelashes. Shoot, I have long eyelashes myself… and I’m a dude.
