Helmut Lang x Josephine Meckseper Release 3-Piece Collection
Helmut Lang has partnered with German multimedia artist Josephine Meckseper on a limited three-piece collection. The new capsule includes a t-shirt, trucker-style denim jacket, and cuffed dark-wash jeans. All three items have a hand-painted graphic inspired by the designer’s three-striped trucker jacket from 1997.
For the collection, Meckseper, who is known for large-scale installation pieces, incorporated a hand-painted technique through an intensive screen-printing process that emulated the original design while adding 3D effect. The print is placed on the side of the t-shirt, back of the jacket, and inside the cuff of the jeans. Helmut Lang has a long history of collaborating with artists, including an earlier Pride capsule with Artforum and t-shirt collection with Russian artist Slava Mogutin.
The Helmut Lang x Josephine Meckseper collection is available online now.
