My Summer Vibe is Margiela and Helmut Lang-Here is My Shopping List RN
5 min read
If this doesn't ring for you, here's a visualization: relaxed pants and slightly stylish tops that show off the skin in neutral, muted shades. It’s a whole lot of black, white, and creamy beige tones and a whole cool. The key to nailing this look is to wear pieces that are not complicated but interesting; they appear simply on the surface, but there is always a detail or two to catch the eye. Below, I break down my extensive shopping list by category to show you how I capture the Margiela-Helmut vibe this summer.
Solid basics are critical to any wardrobe, but in this case, they are essential. Check out any Helmut Lang show from the ' 90s, and you’ll discover the overall simplicity behind each outfit. But in a real way, there’s always a subversive spin-whether it’s silhouette, style, or construction. In terms of palettes, neutrals dominate more than both Margiela and Helmut Lang during this time, so when creating again, you’ll want to stick to the black and white separating. Not everyone has a strict black and white palette, though: Both designers are known to throw in a soft shade of blue or green for great proportions.
A girl Helmut or Margiela does not wear any old jacket — she wears structured blazers Margiela blazers run the design gamut from intricate and deconstructed to lesserly inspired clothing of masculine. One thing remains the same, though: They must be oversized and boxy.
