Helmut Lang SS2003 Leather Sleeve Trucker Jacket

Helmut Lang SS2003 Leather Sleeve Trucker Jacket


Helmut Lang’s Spring/Summer 2003 collection represents a full indulgence into the abstract, a departure of familiarity. To quote Sarah Mower, “Since Lang has been in New York, his once raw, plugged-in connection to underground sources has been replaced by a quest for sophistication, expressed in abstract detailing and luxe materials. So the coats and pants got inserts or sleeves constructed of mesh, chiffon and leather. The T-shirts were often reduced to complex traceries of string. And there was cool white-beaded eveningwear, as a zippered dress or fragile jacket, intended to shine on a red carpet somewhere.”

Throughout his career, Helmut Lang released a litany of variations on the classic trucker jacket. Their unique blend of sharp tailoring and Americana-style detailing have rendered the staple garment an integral part of Lang’s legacy. Amongst the most quintessentially Lang offerings was the leather sleeve trucker, which added a raw hem collar and sleeve, deconstructed chest pocket, and lambskin detailing to his one-pocket denim jackets.
