"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.


  8. Everything about the jacket seemed fine. Quality leather, fit, color etc.The style is classic, yet modern, timeless, casual and very cool. High quality and very well crafted/constructed. Designer jackets
