allegoryoflove: hey do you know where can I find the whole collection of photos that Juergen Teller shot for the last collection of Helmut Lang? thanks

Sorry, I have no idea. The last collection sucked too.

Longer handle loops into the shorter one as closure. Sits comfortably on the shoulder and finished in full matte black python. I can’t recall which year this was from but I’m thinking it’s 2001. One of my dearest and absolute favourites, sorry Phoebe.

Anonymous: i have never seen one available unfortunately! it's such a beautiful bag, cool design, perfect size, luxurious but completely anonymous. perfect.

My thoughts exactly. I have seen the smaller one that comes with the lacerated/perforated leather tho. Cute wristlet size.

Coincidentally, I’m carrying my Helmut Lang sling from Fall 2004. All black hardware.

Anonymous: how do I recognize helmut lang bags or leather accessories designed during helmut's era? thank you very much coton for your advice.

Check the finishing. Made in Italy bags often have the logo blind stamped somewhere inconspicuous. Or they might come with a metal plate engraved with the logo and fastened with two round bevel studs at the ends. Licensed made in Japan bags might look similar but usually have larger logo on the bag. They come with a larger squarish metal plate and the Japanese characters are the hugest giveaways.

Same might apply to the accessories.
