Helmut Lang bondage T-shirt from A/W 2003-2004. In excellent used condition. Made in Morocco.

A/W 2003 is seen by many as Helmut Lang's definitive 'bondage' collection. A diverse variety of inspirations -ranging from airforce uniforms and Vivienne Westwood's Seditionaries to classic evening tailoring- were refined into a unique collection that combined subcultural aggression with refined sartorialism. The season's conceptually rich designs have become part of contemporary fashion history, influencing a wide range of designers in the process. This luxurious shirt features Lang's signature 'bondage' straps on the cuffs.

The shirt is made from Lang's signature Egyptian cotton, a finely knit jersey with a soft, smooth texture and a deep colour finish. Its high thread count results in a very pleasant feel, while suggesting that it will maintain its softness and colour for longer. The T-shirt's cut is narrow and extremely elongated, creating a very contemporary form-fitting silhouette that was more common in Lang's final years. The clean design features a crew neckline that is finished with ribbed knit, while the cuff straps are realised in black elastic tape. The construction is precise and streamlined, evident in the top's clean lines.

An excellent layering piece, this top demonstrates that basic designs held an important role for Helmut Lang, who made no compromise in regards to their cut, fabrication and finishing.
