This Helmut Lang bomber from 1997 is cut in a true vintage bomber fashion with its cropped body and blouson fit. It's fabricated in a superfine silk-hand nylon on both sides with soft, plush insulation. The materials read more luxury than utility, and yield a less structured, more fluid and body-hugging drape. Its all-black outer face is punctuated by the contrast white zipper tape, a detail tying it into Spring and Fall 1997 collections where linear graphic accents featured heavily (whether they be hand-painted or contrast fabric inserts). The interior is finished with clean, hidden french seams, allowing this piece to be worn on the reverse side for an additional color option.
Made in Italy 7/10 Condition, with some color transfer on the inner cream side. See pictures for details.
