Helmut Lang SS2000 Packable Bondage Windbreaker

350.00

Helmut Lang’s SS2000 collection was intended to be rather dreamlike. The surreal quality of it took shape in the variety of airy fabrics he sent models across the runway in, which were translucent and revealing. He additionally opted for light colors which did little to obscure the model’s figures. It can be seen as a precursor to the spring show he presented two years later, which, while more stripped down, featured a similar lightness to the designs.

This minimal yet efficiently constructed jacket boasts a hidden interior bondage strap and the ability to neatly reconstruct into a shoulder bag, as seen in the second photo. Weaving bondage straps into these more utilitarian garments, as opposed to something less socially permissible, like an oversized bomber jacket, displays what is often surmised as the thrill of wearing Lang’s garments. Cloaking the darker, more sexual connotations beneath everyday wear creates something of a secret handshake for those who know.

Condition: 8.5/10. Light signs of wear.
