Helmut Lang Vintage 1992 Liquid Stretch Sheer Panel Diamond Stitched Dress
Incredible and noteworthy dress from Helmut Lang, Fall/Winter 1992 (similar runway examples shown here, but cannot find the full collection online anywhere to get a shot of this specific dress). 1992 was an iconic year for Helmut Lang - written up and raved about with glowing reviews. Lang was said to provide fashion for the anti-fashion, elevating club wear and minimalism for those who didn't have a staple designer to look toward before him. This dress is a great example of his work from the heyday of an era he helped define. Black liquid stretch spandex bodice with v neck and sheer banded panel sleeves. Stitching at lower waist connects the skirt bottom, which is comprised of diamond stitched sheer layered over double sheer fabric and overlapping in the back to reveal the underskirt. Very interesting details. A fantastic piece that is as rare as it is cool.
