Black & White.


I have a serious Helmut Lang problem. It’s both a good and a bad thing. A good thing because his pieces are just the best. They always fit, they’re always flattering and even the most basic/boring pieces have some element of coolness to them. You buy his pieces once, and then you have them forever. The leather leggings I invested in three years ago… the little black dresses I reach for over and over again… and the jackets, which are probably my favorite. This jacket is the latest addition to my closet, making for my third Helmut Lang jacket (I also have this and this… both are black.)

    LOVE Helmut Lang. I could spend hours in that boutique in Nolita. Oh, wait… I did. In all seriousness, those are the pieces that stay in my closet season after season, year after year and look just as great now, as they did when I bought them. The leather is just the softest and even the basic t-shirts drape better than anything else I have worn. It shows that sometimes you need to pass on the trends and invest your money into amazing craftsmanship and classic style. I am totally jealous of your jacket, by the way.

    I splurged on a Helmut Lang blazer earlier this year and I’m already saving up for the next one. The craftsmanship is top notch and I love that most of his pieces are made in the USA.
