HELMUT LANG

Mummy Trousers
SS2004


 

DESCRIPTION

In 2004, Helmut Lang continued to present subversive collections that encoded the adumbration of bondage, acid-house, and punk. His erotic yet perplexing designs sauntered the runway, with it, these pants were born. The mummy trousers are an ode the Lang’s design; they capture the essence of youth and highlight the inspiration Lang draws from subcultures around the globe. In principle, these trousers function like any other, their personality is derived from the accentuated straps that weave across their legs.

COVERAGE

Helmut Lang’s introduction into fashion was akin to many menswear aficionados of late, as he took an interest in the garments worn by the stylish residents of Vienna. He admired them and wanted to explore this medium for himself. He has often been labeled as a minimalist, as he followed the modernistic architecture principle of “form follows function” religiously. He reimagined otherwise mundane clothing articles through precise alternations that ultimately transformed them into stylish wearable garments, unheard of at the time in menswear. His opus retrospectively displays a constant dialogue between the consumer and the product, as his pieces vary from those everyday pairs of jeans to gaudy sequin parkas for costuming.
