Hood By Air Is Going On A Hiatus Immediately
Back in March, we reported Hood By Air’s Shayne Oliver was set to collaborate with Helmut Lang. Now less than a month later, Hood By Air has announced that is going on hiatus, effective immediately. The unexpected news follows the brand's decision to cancel its Fall 2017 runway show at Paris Fashion Week last month.
“Co-founders Shayne Oliver and Leilah Weinraub will be focusing on their current projects,” said a press release. “Weinraub is currently developing her film and directorial career with her upcoming project ‘SHAKEDOWN,’ included in the Whitney Biennial in May. Oliver will be devoting himself in the immediate future to his responsibilities at Helmut Lang.”
Despite the current HBA hiatus, the label insists it will “continue to fulfill its creative vision in the near future.” Until then, we’ll have our eye out for what Oliver debuts for Helmut Lang.
