Helmut Lang SS2005 Hooded Fishtail Parka

300.00

Spring/Summer 2005 - Helmut Lang’s swan song with his eponymous label. The collection can be viewed as a culmination of his body of work, as many familiar themes resurfaced into the runway presentation. Lang’s elegant utilization of minimalism served as the foundation, as seen in the sharply cut blazers and shirts. The color palette was cohesive - plenty of whites, tans, and light blues to convey the prominent nautical theme. Of course with Helmut Lang, there’s always some degree of the abstract to be discovered. There were knots tied into the short dresses, which created a compelling, unnatural drape on the wearers. The oddly shaped garments were thematically similar to that of Spring/Summer 2003’s intricate cuts.

This parka is deceivingly detailed. It features a detachable, oversized hood of a soft cotton jersey. Attached by silver snap button closure, it can be removed to convert the coat into a sharp, collarless mac. The frontal buttons allow the wearer to conceal the flaring of the hood to their liking. The very lightly waxed cotton presents a water-resistant texture, while also giving it a subtle sheen. This parka is a brilliant example of Helmut Lang’s unrivaled ability to sneak in minute detailing into familiar garments.
