1998 Layered Fleece Fur Ballistic Parka
Marked size: 50
This jacket is amazing, never seen another exactly like it, it has both the satin padded lining as well as the shearling type fleece layer that shows when worn open. THEN it has a wire frame flap fur hood attached and the fur can be removed via velcro! So if you want to tone it down just pull the fur velcro out. This is THE Helmut parka.
The 1998 runway collection this is from featured a white setting with tones of white and cream to start the runway eventually ending with all black outfits of different textures and lots of layering. It really showed Helmut’s subtle touches and attention to detail as well as the scale his pieces can get to in grandness while still following the basic casual wear and military silhouettes they were sampling.
