Helmut Lang, 2004 Raw Denim Slim 1-Pocket Trucker Jacket
The 1-pocket jacket is one of Helmut Lang's most definitive garments. Introduced in 1998, it perfectly encapsulates Lang's minimalist approach, where luxury is achieved through streamlined yet conceptually rich designs with an emphasis on carefully selected materials and reworked cuts.
This time constucted out of a classic raw brown denim with, creating a sleek and structured look, with continued wear only improving the look over time. The jacket is seen to have a stripped back form, with the absence of the usual front panels and multiple storage pockets. A single breast pocket has been added to the left chest, crafted in the shape of a back pocket from a pair of jeans. The silhouette is slim with defined shoulders, a tapered body, elongated sleeves, and finished off with branded silver brass hardware.
