When visiting Berlin I was on the lookout for something special. A piece that was minimal and basic but versatile at the same time; a present from me to me. I couldn’t find what I was looking for however, so after a few days of browsing stores I gave up. But then there was this unexpected extra day. And while searching through the racks at KaDeWe I found this Helmut Lang dress in sale. Maybe, just maybe, it could be that special piece. I tried it on in my size, but the edgy look that was there on the hanger completely disappeared when it was wrapped around my body… Disappointed I put the dress back: mission failed. Until I saw the dress a few sizes bigger. Would that be the solution? It absolutely was!
