S/S 09 Trend: The Helmut Lang Effect

Mens Style BlazerIf you invested in a piece of mannish oversized tailoring during A/W 08 then you’ll have plenty of reason to get more wear out of it this S/S 09 as this will remain hot on the list of top trends this summer.

Coined ‘the Helmut Lang effect’ this trend will be all about oversized blazers, pops of shocking bright colours such as electric blue and satin cerise and simple elegant designs inspired by the early 1990s.

All you need to complete the look is a pair of draped loose tailored trousers and a sheer vest to wear underneath. Look to Richard Nicoll and Stella McCartney for inspiration for styling these looks, and pick yourself up an oversized blazer such as this one which I love, and you can buy up from Urban Outfitters in the sale for £29.99 (down from £55, bargain!).
