Thrift Inspiration, Helmut Lang style!!!

I've always loved the minimalism of Helmut Lang-the sharp lines, elagant silhouttes and  his use of black and white, denim and deconstruction in his style have made him a designer whose pieces I've always admired through the late 80s and 90s.

Net-A-Porter have a gorgeous range of the current collection, which is now under the creative direction of designers Michael and Nicole Colovos-money permitting I would love the leather and wool asymmetric dress and the Analog leather jacket-perfect for the 'Fetish' trend going on this coming season:

Still, I am more than consoled by this Fridays find at my local boot sale, this gorgeous buttersoft black leather deconstructed style bag by Helmut Lang for only £1.

It will go perfectly with my charity shop find earlier this week in my last post, my black waxed River Island skinny jeans. Its a perfect day to night bag and is already a favourite in my wardrobe! 


What style of bag will you be wearing for this coming season?

I bought a new burgundy structured handbag... I think I will wear it many times this fall....

Interesting inspirations you shared with us....

I hope all is just fine with you and kids.

Love and blessings your way, my dear.

Consolation, for SURE! What a great bag. I like the look of deconstructed bags, but HATE digging around for my "paraphernalia". Any suggestions?

The bag is a super-find! I am looking for a good fall-neutral, like deep purple, mustard or olive. But I would have grabbed this one up and run!

What a great bag and only a £1 - wow! I shall still be carrying my Alexander Wang!

Kezzie said...

That's a great find then! I don't have any particular style when going for a handbag- just a mottley collection which I admired at the time! At the moment I have a tiny little mini satchel style one in patent blue with a black buckle that came courtesy of Per Una sale for only £1 2 years ago!

Helmut Lang is really going strong again - what a great find, Sharon! I think I'll still try to fit all my stuff in my tiny clutch I bought myself for my b-day. xo

Hi everyone-thanks so much for all your fab comments, so much appreciated xxx

Anusha said...

Oh my goodness that is the most amazing bag!!! I am drooling over it!

I love the asymmetrical leather dress too!

I need another black leather bag for Fall/Winter. I have only one black bag if you can believe it. I adore it but it's got very rock & roll studs all over, so I can't wear it with everything. Looking for a plainer black bag. :o)

Caroline said...

LOVE that bag! And LOVE your new look for your blog too - fabulous photos x
