Nothing beats Helmut Lang. I’ve fallen in love with the fashion house over the last few seasons and have slowly built a small collection (they share my love of asymmetrical hems… does it get any better?

Nothing also beats a strong shoulder… a power shoulder.

Now, I’m not referring to the over the top padding from the 80’s.  This is a subtle (about as subtle as it can get) shoulder.  It’s maybe somewhere between the harsh, over the top 80’s…

and Balmain (who doesn’t love those Balmain jackets from seasons ago??).

I also am loving the neckline. Truly a turtleneck but not the choking turtlenecks of childhood or the oversized droopy cowl neck from my Goodwill donation pile. It’s somewhere in between – gracefully draping the neck. Do I love Helmut Lang or do I love Helmut Lang?
