"When the financial establishment is not having such a good time, it's a good time for creativity."
"...The end product might have some relationship to bondage clothing, but that wasn't the original inspiration.  If you ask Melanie [Ward] if she's interested in S&M, she's like, 'No, no, not really,' and very English about it.  It wasn't something we looked at when we started work on the collection."
I miss Helmut Lang by Helmut Lang.


  1. I can't say I love in the styling in these but the clothes are so perfect...

    Thanks for sharing, as always!

  2. Such new punk! & then some. Very edgy..still.

  3. Wow, why did this never catch on? Or did it?

  4. Awesome post! Really, loved the quotes too.

  5. Syed,you like those. Aww.... I am sorry.I don't understand at all. Too avant garde or too sophisticate?I hope I can leave better comment next time:D Thank you anyway.

  6. G: I actually agree with you, and I'm not particularly a Terry fan either (..to say the least), but the clothes trumped it for me.

    Mari: Haha it is a bit of a trashy shoot, but I have a soft spot for Helmut.

  7. It makes me realise... I need more chain-mail in my life.
