Helmut Lang tailored bondage shirt from S/S 2004. In excellent used condition with minor signs of wear. Made in Italy.

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. One of the collection's strongest themes was the' 'iridescent color' and 'lightness of structure' of dragonflies. Lang's typical sharp silhouettes were intensified by abstracted shapes, elastic straps, cut-outs and unexpected splashes of reflective materials. This shirt features Lang's much-coveted elastic bondage straps on the right side, giving it a striking asymmetric appearance. Although it was not shown on the runway, the V-shaped strap application can be seen in several designs throughout the show (pictured: trousers with the same detail on the crotch).

While being a seasonal design, the shirt is tailor made to the same high specifications as Helmut Lang's classic shirts. The mother-of-pearl button closure leads up to a chunky point collar with a strong yet subtle shape. The sleeves have a sharp two-piece construction, while the upper back features side pleats for increased comfort. All interior seams have flat fell finishing that prevents them from undesirable fraying, thereby ensuring the longevity of the shirt. The fabric is a luxurious cotton poplin with a smooth texture and a slightly lustrous finish. The silhouette is slimmer than Lang's classic shirts with narrow shoulders, skinny sleeves and a fitted body.

A classic bondage piece from one of Helmut Lang's best collections, this easy yet sophisticated shirt will give gravitas to any thoughtful outfit.
