Fall (’15) in Love – The Leather Collar

Fall is the season for serious style. It’s the time we pay close attention to outerwear, sigh over slouchy knits and look for pieces to take style from zero to a hundred. Helmut Lang’s lightweight, lasercut leather blouse ($1075) is autumn’s ultimate statement piece. Crafted entirely from lambskin, the surprising use of fabrication lends the noir collar a shock of minimal dare. Add a streamlined, ¾ length skirt with kicks, or tuck into narrow black denim with heels. Steal the show either way.
