Travis Scott was courtside to watch the Brooklyn Nets beat the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the NBA Playoffs on Saturday night. The Nets' Kyrie Irving's wild three-pointer had the Houston artist out of his seat. Travis' outfit, his jacket especially, had us out of ours.
Travis wore an olive green Helmut Lang Flak jacket from the designer's legendary Fall/Winter 1999 collection, via Los Angeles archive destination Silver League. It's a museum-worthy garment that embodies Helmut's heavy military influence and the peak of his powers during the late '90s and early 2000s. As such, it's a pretty hard piece to come by, and a grail that goes for tens of thousands of dollars in cases where it's actually hunted down.
Evidently dressing to impress — which was lucky, seeing as he also bumped into Jay Z and Beyoncé at the game — Travis did a sneaker swap at halftime that didn't go unnoticed, at least not by us. At one point, he was in his upcoming Nike Air Max 1 sneaker. At another, the unreleased 2006 Iron Maiden Nike Dunks, which are currently available for $100,000 at StockX. Lol.
The Houston artist paired his Helmut Lang grail jacket and sneaker transformation with a Cactus Jack face mask and brown cargo pants. It's far from the first time Travis has used the color palette, with most of his own Cactus Jack line based around earthy tones. We recently wrote about olive green being everywhere, and this only furthers the color's case.
The fact that one of celebrity culture's biggest names is dipping into the archives is yet another signifier of resale's continued rise, particularly when it comes to '90s and '00s fashion. We found the FW99 Helmut jacket at Grailed (more of a look-but-don't-touch piece, considering its $6k price tag), as well as some other goods to get Travis Scott's courtside look with below.
