Wild & Lethal Trash AW1998 Astro Jacket

Wild & Lethal Trash AW1998 Astro 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.

This space-age jacket serves as a sterling example of the unique fabric work Wild & Lethal Trash was quietly notable for. Though not as attention grabbing as their graphics and color schemes, it was just as distinguishing. The litany of details crafted into this jacket are elaborated upon on the tag, and include a detachable messenger bag, velcro pockets, 3M badges, and aluminum elbow cut-outs.

Condition: 8/10. Small stains and various signs of discoloration throughout. No severe flaws otherwise.
