Helmut my Helmut

There are staples. Staples that keep you on the straight path and narrow. Things that you rely on to give yourself a degree of sense and reality. The things that you go back too, time and time and time again.

Designer purchase numero uno was a pair of Helmut Lang jeans. It was 2000, when everyone was wearing denim blue Lee bootleg but mine where midnight blue, trimmed in along the legs (making them as cigarette as possible) rendered eternally relevant and destroyed with love.

Lang holds a place in my heart and the Spring Summer 11 collection reminds me again why that is the case. Classic minimalism, mostly mono with focus on cut and quality, it doesn't get much better than Lang.
