Helmut Lang, S/S 2004 Vintage Cotton Biker Jacket
One of Helmut Lang’s most acclaimed seasons was his S/S 2004 collection. He focused on the ’lightness of structure' of dragonflies as inspiration, whereby he created simple athletic ensembles that were intensified by captivating abstracted shapes, elastic straps, cut-out sections and unexpected flourishes of saturated colour.
Here we have a wonderfully executed classic perfecto jacket with Helmut Lang's subtle detailing and sleek pattern cutting in vintage faded black cotton. His revolutionary pattern making shines in this piece, particularly in the rear panel seams where we see articulated under arms and gussets which allow for higher comfort and stay true to the perfecto style. There are 4 pockets across the front of the jacket, two lower reverse zip, one higher chest zip and lastly a coin pocket with a button snap closure. Other details include Helmut Lang embossed snaps, breathable armpit vents, wrist zip adjustment and an inside chest pocket.
Condition 8/10 (minor wear to cuffs).
