Seen here in a traditional shade of forest green, this new season Speed Jacket from Helas arrives as an outerwear staple inspired by classic track-and-field profiles and timeless windrunner silhouettes. Made from a breathable and lightweight blend of 92% nylon and 8% spandex, this long sleeve jacket is styled to a regular fitting with elasticated cuffs, an adjustable toggle secured hemline and with a half-length YKK fastening that flows through the centre of the chest from its dual toggle adjusted high-collared hood. Block navy panellings complement the lower portion of the sleeves and the practical 3D utility pouch pocket above the waist, whilst light-green meshed stripes can be seen across the rear sleeves and across the exterior of the hood as it complements the printed ‘Helas’ cross-top branding. Two zip-secured side seam pockets provide the wearer with ample on-the-go storage functionality, whilst the crisp white embroidered umbrella logo across the central folding placket signs the design off in line with the brand’s ode to no-nonsense sporting aesthetics.
Starting initially as the ‘Helas Cap Club’ in 2011 but swiftly progressing into the clothing brand we see today, Paris based Helas is a contemporary minded skatewear brand that isn’t afraid to turn its attention to less celebrated colourings and aesthetics for inspiration. Meaning ‘unfortunately’ in French and named after a brief stint that founders Lucas Puig, Stephen Khou and Clement Brunel spent in a rain clad London, Helas is a go-to skatewear brand for anyone in the market for something a little more playful and nostalgic in nature.
