Helmut Lang has announced a new program entitled Certified Pre-Owned, a collection of rare, vintage, and authenticated Helmut Lang pieces that have been curated from personal collections of select Helmut Lang fans.
The first installment is from the private collection of Jim Walrod, a notable curator and collector whose unique vision and appreciation for contemporary art has helped to shape the vision of many others. The collaboration is being done in support of the development of an upcoming initiative helmed by the Walrod estate. This initiative will connect young creatives with mentors in their respective fields and keep Jim’s spirt alive.
This edition of Helmut Lang Certified Pre-Owned features the following pieces: Fall/Winter 1995 3-Button Classic Jacket, Spring/Summer 1996 Moleskin Zip Donkey Jacket, Fall/Winter 1997 Caban Jacket with Printed Stripe, Fall/Winter 1997 Workwear Shirt with Velvet Collar, Spring/Summer 1997 Nylon Zip Blouson, Spring/Summer 1998 Workwear Shirt with Contrast Collar, Fall/Winter 1998 Workwear Shirt with Patches, Fall/Winter 1999 Astronaut Parka, Fall/Winter 2000 Ballistic Polyamide Padded Parka, Fall/Winter 2000 Mesh Knit Sweater, Fall/Winter 2000 Moleskin Deck Jacket with Hood, Fall/Winter 2001 Leather Mac Coat, Fall/Winter 2002 V-Neck Textured Sweater, and Spring/Summer 2003 Ribbed V-Neck Sweater.
Helmut Lang is no stranger when it comes to projects focused on collaborating with other artists to showcase their archives. This past October, the brand revitalized an old logo to debut a limited capsule collection for Halloween. In 2017, the brand launched a project entitled Helmut Lang As Seen By: The Artist Series in which young creatives were designated a specific month to collaborate on limited-edition merchandise. David Casavant, another well-known fashion collector, has acquired his own assemblage of Helmut Lang merchandise from the ’90s and early aughts. The brand’s status in the industry is stronger than ever, and proves to stand the test of time again and again.
Helmut Lang Pre-Owned is now available online.END
