Product Spotlight - Helas Summer '22
Helas' Summer lineup has just dropped in store with a load of summer-ready caps and tees as well as all-new Helas sliders.
If there's one brand that perfectly captures the vibe of summer, it's gotta be Helas. I mean it's helmed by short-shorts pioneer and general summer lover, Lucas Puig, so it's no surprise that Helas clothing seems more suited to lounging on a beach in the south of France than skating a dreary British street. Despite this, Helas have surpassed themselves with this latest drop, coming through with a collection that's so summery that the only thing missing is a bottle of sun cream and a pack of cans.
Of course, Helas Caps Club have come through with some premium headwear offerings to protect ya head from those nasty solar rays. The Helas 'Logo' 6 panel cap is a straight-up classic in a timeless dad-hat style. Featuring a 6-panel construction and a curved peak, this stylish number offers maximum shade for your eyes making it perfect for skating in the midday sun or lounging on the beach. If you're after a clean, minimalist cap then look no further than this sleek offering which comes in either a black colourway, or a lovely light blue, both of which feature a white embroidered Helas logo on the front. Simple but effective.
The Helas 'Blu' 6 panel cap is another summery banger that's got some serious old-school swimwear vibes. The Blu cap features alternating panels of light blue and dark blue stripes with no logo on the front of the cap for a clean retro aesthetic with a nice little twist. The perfect pairing for your vintage 1920s bathing suit. Again, this cap features an unstructured 6 panel construction and a curved peak for maximum squint reduction, as well as an embroidered Helas clamp label on the side and adjustable strap with embossed buckle on the rear.
The last cap in the collection is a premium lightweight 5-panel that's specially designed to keep your head feeling (and looking) as cool as possible. The Helas 'Hiding' 5 panel cap features an unstructured 5-panel construction with a navy upper and flat peak with a stylish white trim. The main feature of this cap is the mesh side panels which offer premium ventilation to maximise breathability so you can keep skating for longer without your head absolutely dripping.
Alongside the caps, Helas have got some new clothing offerings to get you kitted up up for summer flexing. The Helas 'Palmelas' tee is an especially summery offering (except for the fact it's a longsleeve) with the graphic reenvisioning Helas' iconic umbrella logo in the shape of a palm tree as both a chest and back print. This subtle logo is the perfect choice if you're not a fan of obnoxious branding.
Carrying on their tradition of incorporating classical artwork in their graphics, the Helas 'Icare' T-Shirt features imagery from an iconic French painting. The graphic is a reimagining of the 'Fall of Icarus' by Merry-Joseph Blondel - an oil painting found on the ceiling of the Rotunda of Apollo in the Louvre Museum in Paris - with the painting appearing in the shape of Helas' classic umbrella logo as both a chest and back print. A seriously decadent design to flaunt your intellectual prowess.
Last but not least, the pièce de résistance from the collection is an all-new addition to Helas lineup. Feast your eyes on the new Helas Slides. These bad boys are a summer essential, featuring an open toe construction to let your toes breathe with a bangin' Helas sun logo print on the strap. That's not all though, the Helas sliders feature a Cloud Foam Comfort sole for maximum comfort while you're kickin' it by the pool.
