Helmut Lang SS1999 Bulletproof Vest



Helmut Lang’s spring 1999 runway balanced pops of pink and silver against a stark, black and white palette (cyberwhite, as Vogue called it.) Though to call the entire output stark would overly reductive. As the saying goes, the devil is in the details, and with Lang that always was where the fun lied. His truly sui generis brand of subtle eroticism was on full display, with sheer shirts underscoring his sharp tailoring, and soft silk tops sticking and conforming to their wearers. These famous “bulletproof” vests were first introduced in 1997, and released over several seasons with variations in detailing and fabric. This iteration was made in a lightweight black cotton. Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws. Tagged size: 50 Shoulder: 17in Pit to pit: 22in Length: 28.25in
