N7 Shades of Grey

N7 Shades of Grey

>> Along with seemingly EVERY media outlet out there, I too have not escaped from a poorly constructed title, which infers to that phenomenally successful book, which we shall not name.  These photos were taken when we were crying for sun back at the beginning of summer, weirdly fitting for Helmut Lang's A/W 12-3 stormy collection of tree prints, hellfire reds and their now-signature leathers and draped pieces.  They've just launched their Guest Blogger's Series with myself, Street Peeper and Chic Muse being the first guinea pig participants.  I took a few of my favourite things from the collection and they all somehow fitted in with the tinges of grey that my N7 hood is most capable of projecting.  Holloway Road doesn't do pretty save for the Thierry Henry statue outside the Emirates Stadium.  It does kebab shops, Gooner pubs and grafittied squat residences – all good spots to be wearing tactile bits of fur-collared leather, draped silk and jersey apparently as well as the pre-requisite puffa jacket.

    Your style is so refreshing and completely untempered by trends. I love the Helmut Lang dress in the third photograph and, of course, you wear it brilliantly!
    Best Wishes,

    I like the first outfit the most. I’m not sure if it’s a skirt or a dress, but the colours are amazing.

    It’s got to be said that I don’t have an anti-fur stance. i’m on the fence in so much that it’s not something I’d choose to buy but I don’t reject it on an aesthetic level if I genuinely think it serves aesthetic purpose. Also, I do believe there is no way of checking out every instance of fur sourcing – there are of course examples where it can be ethically sourced.
    Also if I draw one line at fur, how does leather and certain lambskin products square up then? Toxic fumes of dyes wrecking the environment, damaging the health of human beings working in the factories? Terrible working conditions of factories?
    What I’m saying that holding an anti stance on fur and not on other equally harmful/pertinent issues is just plain deluded…
