By A/W 1991 Helmut Lang had begun to firmly establish himself as a harbinger of the coming age of cool aesthetic. Pushing a new yet incredibly well thought out set of concepts, ideas and design. This show exemplifies Lang’s androgynous yet thoughtful design with consistent details that he revisited season after season. Throughout the show we saw a wide array of perforated materials in particular leather and suede-like garments, knowing full well that a staple item had been created, Helmut continued this design in the following years to come.
The Perforated Suede Blazer is an iconic piece from this collection and a great example of Helmut Lang’s tailoring. Worn on the runway as a suit with matching trousers the jacket is an ideal formal jacket, which can be worn in a multitude of ways to highlight the staple hole effect of the jacket. This item is made from a poly-blend with a suede texture, featuring all-over circular shape perforations also featuring a single breasted two-button closure. The jacket is an exceptional piece and we are extremely happy to have this as part of the permanent collection.
