Helmut Lang, A/W 1997 Red Denim with Chiffon Layer
The Helmut Lang jeans line was just one year old in 1997 and it was producing some of its best and most coveted pieces in it’s short history. Garments such as the bulletproof vest, the M-51 military parka which was taken on with Langs twist and a wide array of new fabric treatments for denim.
This pair of denim is constructed out of Lang’s classic 5-Pocket raw denim which offers a structured and rough finish. Here in the lesser-seen red colour that features rarely across the jeans line, with another rare detail present, the slightly distressed silk chiffon placed and stitched over the front of each leg creating a 3D effect to the jeans. This silk layer is fine and lightweight, designed to fade and fray in accordance to the wearer's movements.
Size 28 (unaltered).
Leg opening: 19cm
