Helmut Lang, 1998 Classic Raw Denim 2 Pocket Jacket
This jacket features Lang's 'Classic 2 Pocket' design, based on Levi's 557XX jacket from the early 1960s. Like the original, the jacket has a panelled torso construction with two chest pockets, however, sticking to his streamlined and minimalist approach, removing the lower pockets. This trucker is constructed in a signature heavy raw denim, which allows the structure of the jacket to be held true, offering a sleek and streamlined look. The grey/brown colour is wonderfully created with the weave of the denim, in some lighting offering more colour than the other. Finally, the hardware has a matte silver finish and is engraved with the Helmut Lang logo. A fine example of Helmut’s precision and attention to detail whilst still keeping true to the original inspiration, a must-have for any Helmut lang enthusiast.
