Hello, Helmut

Helmut Lang Sugar Cropped Jacket

I usually gravitate toward simple and classic shapes, but the special details on this Helmut Lang jacket were too good to pass up (and LeAnne wouldn’t let me leave the store without it!) It has an unusual d-ring closure and beautiful leather details on the strap and sleeves. The dramatic inverted back hem adds another special touch to this truly unique jacket. To show off these details, I kept the rest of my outfit simple.  I’ve also tried it with this dress and the color contrast was perfection. I’m excited to add this piece into heavy rotation.

    Hey! Love your jacket, I also have it, but can I ask how you wash it? I am having the hardest time finding a dry cleaner who will take it. Mine is white as well but has the black leather detailing.

      Hi Laura – Excellent question! I took mine to my local dry cleaner and was going to do the professional leather cleaning. When I heard how absurdly expensive it was, I asked her to give it to me straight as to whether or not it was necessary. Since mine is white on white she said it would probably be OK, so I chanced it. Luckily, it turned out just fine.

      However….when I purchased mine at Barney’s, they had mentioned the black on white version you have and they said there was a big problem with the black leather bleeding into the white jacket 🙁 She even said several had been returned because of it. I might suggest reaching out to Helmut Lang’s customer service to see what they recommend… then if something happens, hopefully they will take care of you.

      Good luck!
      XO Christina
