perfect black blazer

perfect black blazer
alexander wang | acne | helmut lang | helmut lang

i have been in search of the perfect black blazer for... too long.

of course the front runners of the game are saint laurent and balmain, but who can afford to pay $2,000 for a blazer??

props must got to comme des garcons for their continuing innovation and undeniably cool silhouettes. that flower blazer is exquisite.

probably in the slightly more affordable range comes alexander wang, helmut lang, acne and lover (particularly if they are on sale).  have my eyes on this acne blazer (too expensive), this helmut lang blazer (also unaffordable) and the lover infinity tux (impossible to find). sigh... the search continues.

might just have to settle with my trusty zara blazer for now...

  1. Wow, this is a great post! I tend to feel like all the blazers I see while shopping look exactly the same, but I think it's just that when you are only looking at one it's hard to pick up on the subtle differences. It's SO easy to see them this way!

    1. there are so many subtle differences with a simple black blazer! and for what cut suits you really depends on how well it's made as well as your body type. i think you can definitely tell the difference between a saint laurent blazer and a zara blazer haha - the price, most notably!

  2. Funnily enough... I've never owned a blazer, let alone a classic black blazer! I really should get on that ;)

  5. Eee! These are such great picks! And the black blazer is like a LBD in my opinion--it has to be perfect, and it has to be a manifestation of your personal style! Best of luck in your search and can't wait to see what you finally decide upon! c;
