Wild & Lethal Trash SS1997 "Welcome Little Stranger 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 futuristic jacket contains the type of inventive mix of materials W&LT was famous for. The body is constructed with a lightweight cotton and nylon, while the sleeves contain plastic elbow patches, and the back features a velcro-affixed patch displaying Puk-Puk — W.&L.T.’s gleefully mischievous cartoon aviator — appearing from a space ship. Notably, Puk-Puk is portrayed in a more menacing visual language than what is typical for the label, with his usually-smiling face shown only in silhouette.
