Helmut Lang Resort is very item centric, which I love. That’s pretty much how I like to shop. The challenge is finding a good item that stands on its own in a distinctive way, yet isn’t so identifiable that it can’t be styled with several looks. The top above is a great example. I’ve looked this season for a white shirt with ties, but haven’t found one with the right fit. This could be it, although I’ll have to wait. I like the way the fabric drapes, and the loose, away from the body construction. It looks easy to wear. Plus, it’s on trend with tied waists and sleeves making appearances everywhere for resort. The longer the straps the better with edges hanging out under jackets or other layers. The other pieces from the collection I have my eye on have a similar thread with tied details.
