'Thank you for my handcuff! … I’m yours forever!'
- Carine Roitfeld, French Vogue editor, in a letter to Helmut Lang
S/S 2004 is one of Helmut Lang's most famous seasons and many of its captivating designs are now part of modern fashion history. The legendary handcuff bracelet is one of Helmut Lang's quintessential accessories, a timeless piece that encapsulates his subversive vision. It was quickly sold out when it came out and since then it has acquired 'grail' status among Helmut Lang cognoscenti, including collectors such as Met Museum's Costume Institute. The rarity of this piece cannot be understated. We are pleased to also offer the women's version.
We have sold numerous handcuff bracelets in the past, and this is by far the best looking: silver with a matte finish. The construction of the bracelet is impeccable and demonstrates Lang's perfectionism. All connections are heat treated for a perfect seamless finish, and the movement of the opening is extremely precise and steady. Like real handcuffs, the sharp ridged closure is adjustable and opens with a concealed clasp.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire Helmut Lang's most iconic accessory, a piece with a firm position at the forefront of 21st century fashion history.
