  • Helmut Lang’s Fall 1999 collection remains a hallmark in fashion history. Drawing inspiration from aviation and space travel, the utilitarian designer strayed far from the norms of couture, unveiling bulky, armour-like silhouettes. Metallic garments paid homage to the original NASA suits, while moto detailing and reinforced hems lined every garment. The palette was neutral with exception of vibrant electric-orange hues intermittently placed throughout, among subtle hits of indigo denim. From cargo pockets to parachute detailing, Lang exemplified a dystopian, futuristic vision. Being the first collection to release both online and via CD-Rom format, the season was chocked with innovation and a first of it’s kind.


    Withheld to the glass-ceiling of grail culture, the Astro Cargo pants are famed for their unique, 3D profile and utility focal design. Featuring 4 symmetric cargo pockets, two above the knee and two towards the bottom hem, an excess in fabric is allocated for a protruding style. The waist is adjusted with synching buckles and complimented with a raw zipper, circling the upper trim. Diagonal pockets are clasped just below, while the bottom hem is flared with two devices on either side. This specific pair is a 1/1 in regard to sizing, as all Astro Cargos ranged below the 50 tag. Residing as a 54, these special order bottoms range a 32-37 waist and 34 inseam, in good condition aside from some discolouration.
