wilkommen, helmut lang

I’m so excited. Fashion house Helmut Lang is opening its first dedicated European store in London on 1 September. Although the eponymous Austrian-born designer no longer works for the brand (he left in 2005 and two years later husband and wife team Michael and Nicole Colovos relaunched the label to much praise), the clothes have lost none of their sexy/edgy minimalist androgyny. In fact, I might even go so far as to say that I prefer the AW11 line (my favourites looks are below) to everything that has come before it. What delicious blasphemy.

    The clothes have everything that made them so covetable in the 90s… plus a great alternative to Rick Owens. Gotta check out the new shop!
    Cats always have the best taste, don’t they?

    P.S. Yeap, you were incredibly fashion forward… sporting the crochet as a toddler already :)

    Thanks so much for your comment on my post about fashion bloggers. I had such a great response to something which I was in two minds about posting about because it could potentially just add to le polemique.

    The concept of blogging isn’t even that new anymore but it is still so weird. It will take a very long time for all sides who have shared their two-cents to be able to understand one another and work together. Traditional journalists, reactionaries, PRs looking for free publicity, the bloggers themselves … each could argue their side all day, couldn’t they.

    I think it is important though for bloggers hoping to become journalists to blog in a fashion that is as professional as if you were working under an editor, and treat other people as such. It’s the brouhaha which goes on at fahsion week that brings it all to a head. Bloggers crashing shows, bloggers pinching seats… albeit a small minority but it does happen – I’ve seen it – and it means a bad rep for us all.

    I’m delighted to have come across your blog, there are few fashion blogs out there (which I’ve found anyway) which combine thoughtful writing with beautifully original photographs, like a magazine. I love how you involve your cat too!
