After eight long years, Helmut Lang and UNIQLO reunite for a new collaborative project.

For their latest collaboration, Helmut Lang and UNIQLO join forces to issue arguably the most minimalist jeans I’ve seen yet.

Minimalist jeans? Aren’t they already minimal? Without the distress and other noisy details, sure.

But, Helmut Lang and UNIQLO embrace the denim trouser’s fresh face state, fine-tuning the garment’s usual bells and whistles to fit both labels’ understated design languages.

The Helmut Lang x UNIQLO denim trousers essentially go for a clean, tonal look where details like stitching and buttons match the jean’s wash.

Elevated to sophisticated sensibility with the timelessness of jeans, the Helmut Lang x UNIQLO Classic Cut Jeans manifest as “a new take on denim,” as the brands call the collaboration.

The Helmut Lang x UNIQLO Classic Cut Jeans – UNIQLO’s first-ever recycled and organic cotton jeans — perfectly capture the essence of both labels, if you ask me.

Like their Fall/Winter 2014 cozy sweats, the latest linkup speaks to UNIQLO’s democratic, enduring silhouettes and Helmut Lang’s minimalist aesthetic and top-notch craftsmanship.

Plus, who better to do a minimalist jeans collaboration with than Helmut Lang? Since the 90s, many have admired the Australian eponymous label’s denim for its luxury design and uncomplicated look.

Ye even had quite a few pairs in rotation during the The Life of Pablo days!

For those looking to indulge in the Helmut Lang jean hype or at least dress like 2017 Ye, Helmut Lang x UNQILO Classic Cut Jeans hit UNIQLO’s website and stores on September 26.
