Hélas have come through with a brand new Quickstrike collection dubbed "FINISH HIM", marking the end of Summer and the move in to the colder seasons. The collection picks up from where the last release left off, with several recognisable logo designs from the brands archive, with their recognisable umbrella logo amongst others, applied across tees, shorts, polo tops, sweaters, track suit bottoms and headwear. The collection sticks to a summery colour palette with the use of pastel's and bold colour blocking, while branding is kept subtle throughout as they get more experimental with different materials and cuts. Stand out's include the washed pink embroidered sweater and the Classic nylon tracksuit bottoms for when you wanna stunt down the park.

Hélas have come through with a new Quickstrike collection for Spring featuring a range of seasonal casual wear perfect for the park or the streets.
Hélas have grown their line considerably over the last couple of years, expanding their cut & sew options by introducing new outerwear pieces as well as the introduction of several trouser styles, and their latest release again sees development from the French skate brand. You've got the expected graphic tees bearing the brands umbrella and polo club designs, sitting alongside embroidered logo hoodies and sweaters, while they take casual wear to new levels with soft nylon tracksuit bottoms and matching 'Olympic Squad' tracksuit jacket. The stand out piece from the collection for us is the Classic Coach jacket, made from a robust cotton twill with marble button and embroidered logo detailing, available in black and navy colour options. The collection is rounded off with another strong headwear selection, which features polo caps and 6 panels which utilise light cotton twill and corduroy in their construction.
The Hélas Spring 2016 Quickstrike collection is available online now and will be landing in select retailers shortly. Hélas are also set to drop a new clip soon with the Hélas Polo Club so be sure to keep an eye out for that.
Hélas Caps return this season with their “Since Tomorrow” Fall/Winter 3015/3016 collection, expanding the brands outerwear line for the colder months.
Headed up by one of modern skateboardings biggest names, Lucas Puig’s Hélas is one of the more refreshing brands on the market, drawing from numerous influences to deliver an overtly French take on casual skate/streetwear. Their latest release sees Hélas stick to their guns, as they have done season to season, naturally developing their line from once being heavily headwear focused to introducing various new apparel styles. Combining themes from 90’s sports wear with inspiration from high end design, the release features staple graphic tees, hoodies, sweaters, and more technical outerwear in the colour blocked pullover hooded jackets with matching tracksuit bottoms. The collection is rounded off by a considered range of headwear, utilising various materials and applying familiar embroidered logo detailing.
