HOOD BY AIR ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL HIATUS
News broke out in mid-March that Helmut Lang enlisted Hood by Air designer Shayne Oliver to take an exclusive collection. Rumor has it; this may have been the reason why the New York fashion collective might have been closing, considering they did cancel their runway show in New York then in Paris Fashion Week (March).
Hood by Air announced that it will go on hiatus, effective immediately. This comes with a statement “Oliver will be devoting himself in the immediate future to his responsibilities at Helmut Lang.” It looks like we're on a break now with HBA until then chief executive Leilah Weinraub will focus on her film career, including the documentary “Shakedown” on view in May at the Whitney Biennial.
