I would consider Helmut Lang to be James Perse’s “edgier” little sister, no? Or, Helmut Lang is to NYC as James Perse is to Los Angeles. How’s that for an analogy? 😉 Perhaps Helmut Lang is slightly more polished than Rag & Bone, and more “sophisticated” than James Perse…but they’re all very similar, really. Which is what draws me to them.
I only own a couple of pieces from the HELMUT line (the sweatshirt jacket below and a pair of leggings), but I love them both and am anxiously awaiting fall so I can wear them again. But what really intrigues me about the fall 2013 collection is all the leather details. I’ve never been much for leather on my person (I have a leather jacket that I hardly ever wear), but I’d like to try out a sweater or sweatshirt with leather details, or even a pair of leggings/jeans with leather patches this fall – go a little out of my comfort zone…
