Walter van Beirendonck/Wild & Lethal Trash SS2003 Puk-Puk Boiler Suit

475.00

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 one piece features iconic Puk-Puk iconography, a recurring character throughout the canon of W.&L.T. There was something humorously obscene about Puk Puk, who was often accompanied by overtly sexual remarks, which of course clashed with the preconceptions of a cartoon being. The boiler suit is not simply defined by its graphics, it features several astute details, including a slashed front chest pocket, gold zippers, biker-style zipper cuffs, and an elongated cut. 

Condition: 7.5/10. Bleach staining on upper backside. No significant flaws otherwise.
