Hélas Summer 2022: Collection Overview

Attuned to the spirit of warm weather, Hélas’ first instalment of their Summer ‘22 collection arrives filled with a selection of new Hélas clothing and an accompanying lookbook shot by Tomas Codina featuring the likes of Pierre Leze, Max Geronzi and Thierry Gormit. A continuation of ‘80s sportswear appreciation runs throughout, with new apparel and headwear heavily inspired by their known love of French pastel colourings, their cap club origins and summer-centric twists on their iconic umbrella logo.

Masterminded by adidas and Palace pro Lucas Puig and fellow skaters Clement Brunel and Stephen Khou, Hélas’ creative aesthetic merges ‘80s and ‘90s nostalgia with an appreciation for both their European heritage and their infamous French Lacoste Steeze cap origins. Epochal graphics are continuously paired with their iconic umbrella logo, a playful nod to their ‘alas!’ translative namesake that cites London’s unpredictable weather as reference, Hélas’s first drop for Summer ‘22 includes a new selection of t-shirts such as the Breton style Class Stripe T-Shirt and the 100% cotton Sol Tie Dye T-Shirt. Continuing their love of French architecture and European art culture, the Icare T-Shirt and print matched Icare Hoodie feature an illustrative take on their well recognised logo.

Pattern and colour matched sets continue to arrive, with the baby blue and sand coloured Super Soft Quarter Zip Sweatshirts paired with matching Super Soft Fleece Shorts made from a cotton-acrylic blend and styled with a brushed fleece lining and exposed stitch seams. The colour block Classic Sweatpants are designed with their admiration for ‘80s sportswear in mind, whilst new season Hélas pyjama pants include two new colourways of the Pyjamax Pants made from 100% cotton with an elasticated waist and an all-over repeating Sol print. Inspired by classic outdoor styles the cinch-cuff Hiding Cargo Pants arrive as a complement to the similarly styled Hiding Jacket; a lightweight pullover detailed with a visored hood, a 3D map pocket and a woven elastic V-insert hem and a matching Hiding Cap, styled with exposed mesh side walls.

New Hélas caps include the striped Blu Cap, which features alternating panels and the classic Logo Cap, a 6 panel cap which features an embroidered logo across the crown. Shot in and around the Spanish port village of Garraf in Catalonia, the brand’s summer lookbook and accompanying drop follows swiftly on from their first web-exclusive capsule in April that featured a twelve piece clothing collection detailed with exclusive artwork from photographer Franco Vaccari.
