I've had my eye on this Helmut Lang beauty for some time now (I actually featured it in my Helmut Newton-Inspired Outfits post) and jumped at the chance to have it in my hot little hands as soon as Net-a-Porter had it on sale. I must say my happiness in general has definitely increased now that it has arrived. The ventilated fabric is perfect for summer and much more durable than I would have thought. I'm starting to develop a penchant for spine-centric fashion, I believe.
