It is very rare for something to really stop me in my tracks, in a "let me worship you" kind of way. As you all know there are exceptions to every rule, especially in the world of fashion. I don't ever lust after a trend because they always die anyway, but I do try and go after investment pieces that may fall into trend and never really fall out unless you are personally over it. For this fall I am already over seeing too much fur...jackets, trims, vest...blah. (I guess I feel this way because the temp hasn't gone down far enough to wear said furs.)Yet when I walked into Barney's Co-Op last week I almost lost my mind when I saw this Helmut Lang Chasm jacket! The grey cotton body with the leather sleeves makes it stand out from other shearlings that are a full leather body. The suppleness of the lambskin and the softness of the fur just made me want to melt. This jacket is definitely a staple within a trend. If I had the means to purchase this lovely specimen it would surely be hanging in my closet, waiting for the chill to return.
