Size IT 44: Best for a size 28 waist
For many, Helmut Lang’s AW1999-2000 is thought of as groundbreaking. Many of the pieces that debuted during this time period have never been more relevant than they are today. Denims that look like they could be directly from Hedi Slimane at Dior – Saint Laurent. Astronaut uniforms that remind us of A-Cold Wall by Samuel Ross.
The Helmut Lang archive ENDYMA notes “[i]nterestingly, Helmut Lang was also the first to experiment with resin-coated denim, before Hedi Slamane of Martin Margiela. The trousers are made from Helmut’s signature heavyweight denim that has been coated with polyurethane after their construction, resulting in a directional waxed appearance.”
