Wild & Lethal Trash AW1997 Tyvek "Warrior" Jacket


Founded in 1993 as an offshoot of his eponymous label, Wild & Lethal Trash was Walter Van Beirendonck’s youthful and future-forward clothing label. It borrowed heavily from club kid culture, dealing out heavy doses of neon clothing, and repurposing cartoon characters in a way that suggested drug-induced euphoria moreso than Sunday mornings. The graphics were often bold and chaotic, intentionally lacking a focal point as a way to highlight and repurpose the visual over-saturation created by the internet era.

Though the outlandish visuals of Walter van Beirendonck’s work with Wild & Lethal Trash is well documented, Walter’s work with uncommon fabrics was equally crucial to the sub-label, and in the now-defunct line’s second life upon the internet, acknowledgment of this quality has been placed on the back burner. Most of the pieces which resurface are made of standard wools and cottons and denims. Hence, we’re extremely pleased to present this tyvek jacket, a sterling expression of both of the label’s calling cards. It features a graphic of Puk Puk in “warrior” form, and an ultra delicate fabric not far off from paper. Brand new with original tags attached.
