Helmut Lang SS98 Distressed Acid Wash Denim Jacket
Denim was perhaps the most popular output from Helmut Lang’s eponymous label. The Austrian designer had an enduring fascination with American workwear and this iconic silhouette.
Throughout his career, Lang created countless iterations of denim jackets, sourcing inspiration from their distinct heritage. His innovative approach to denim has been regarded as the catalyst for its transformation from everyday workwear to covetable high fashion today.
Made in 1998, this particular example has been washed, worn and distressed to perfection. The denim has significant weight, giving structure to its tailored shape. The cut is slightly cropped and fitted with high armholes, making the shoulders more defined. Fastening tabs are located at the rear to accommodate for a more fitted look if desired. Silver hardware is consistent on the body, pockets and sleeves and is engraved with 'Helmut Lang Jeans'.
