Back in March we reported that Hood By Air’s Shayne Oliver had joined Helmut Lang to work on a new capsule collection. Now less than a month later, Hood By Air has announced that it is going on hiatus, effective immediately.

According to a press release:

"Co-founders Shayne Oliver and Leilah Weinraub will be focusing on their current projects. 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."

When news of Oliver's involvement with Helmut Lang broke last month, a representative for Hood By Air told Business of Fashion that “Shayne is currently focusing his time on the special project with Helmut Lang. As a result, HBA will be continued but is transitioning to accommodate this. We will be releasing more information soon.”

Despite the current disclosure of an HBA "hiatus," the label still insists it "will continue to fulfill its creative vision in the near future."
