dali One day after Leonard Cohen died, Donald Trump pulled off one of the greatest upsets in American political history. That’s when 2016 went from being a bad dream to full-on waking nightmare, one that’s just gotten more and more surreal.’ Photograph: The Irving Penn Foundation
Helbers' latest collection is inspired by Mr Irving Penn's photographs of Messrs Leonard Bernstein and T.S. Eliot, who typify an immaculate sense of dressing and easy-going elegance. Woven from a luxurious blend of wool, linen, silk and soft cashmere, this blazer is half-canvassed to keep its shape throughout years of wear. Kissing buttoned cuffs give the design an artisanal touch, while the lustrous lining ensures it sits smoothly over shirting.
