Helmut Lang Asymmetrical Dress, $98.00
With an asymmetrical hemline that hits above the knee and high contrast paneling in black and white, this gem is an ultra modern take on a beloved classic: the shift dress. White dresses look their best on summer nights, but they can sometimes be tricky to pull off. Because the sartorial geniuses at Helmut Lang crafted this one with a small slit, dark panels, and drapery both at the waist and across the bust, it’ll flatter whichever lucky lady gets to rock it. From afar, it looks like a striking, but simple monochromatic mini dress, but look closer and be amazed by the thoughtful placement of each cut, fold, and tuck. As with most things in life, the great beauty of this piece lies in its finer details.
