For his Spring Summer 2004 collection, Helmut Lang focused on the concept of dragonflies. The species aligned itself perfectly with the designer's affinity for the juxtaposed. Beautiful yet ugly, rugged yet fragile, agile yet limited. These elements are interpreted artfully through many of the pieces showcased in this production. One of the most notable and successful examples of this, is the designer's take on the classic biker jacket. Through his conceptual framework, Lang employed elements of the dragonfly and translated them to a wearable and distinct garment ready for the modern world. Straps as appendages and cutouts as necessary adornment; are these elements functional or simply for decoration? The jacket exists in these two worlds simultaneously and composes itself similarly to the concept that it directly references.

This version of the jacket focuses on the cafe rider for reference. It is constructed in a very soft suede leather. The internal cutouts are also rendered in the same suede so that they match the exterior. Hardware is rendered in a matching gunmetal with pulls and supplemental elements in black twill tape. 5 Lampo zippers accompany the garment and can be found on each sleeve, the 2 exterior pockets, as well as on the central closure.

The garment is in decent condition considering its age and the material. The previous owner has cut the back straps and the lining has a few tears alongside the neckline. Additionally, the zipper pull on the right is slightly askew.

There is no size tag indicated on the garment. Measurements are as follows.

Chest - 20"
Shoulders - 17"
Sleeve - 26"
Length - 25"
Waist - 16"
