After seeing this Helmut Lang SS12 collection, I am now convinced that I would be perfectly okay with a color-less wardrobe.
Honestly, I want every piece from this collection. I knew wearing black and white could look unique and chic, but this Helmut Lang collection has convinced me that ridding my closet of colors could be beneficial (that is, if I had these pieces!). The unique layerings, cuts and drapings are too stunning, and to not own a piece or more from this SS12 collection would be questionable. The thin spaghetti straps that practically crisscross the neckline is just what one needs to make that subtle unique touch. Definitely finding myself less intrigued by patterns and colors, and more into the cut-out and understated details and geometric shapes of pieces. Oh dear, another collection in which I want to wear absolutely everything...
