looking back

Fashion is almost always about the latest collections but flicking through past shows of favorite designers can be so very inspiring.This ss05 look from helmut lang is something I refer to from time to time--it’s casual but with just the right amount of sexy and absurd. I normally don’t do black & white on its own but with a bit of beige or camel thrown in, the stark black/white contrast suddenly becomes less harsh and very appealing. It’s also a clever way to incorporate black into a summer wardrobe since I tend to wear lighter neutrals during the summer, and leave the black for winter.
