Helmut Lang back in Fashion

Nicole and Michael Colovos started as creative directors of Helmut Lang in 2006 after Theory bought the label from Prada, but they never put on a fashion show. This spring they’ll do their first show for Helmut Lang at New York Fashion Week.

Naoki-Takizawa to lead Helmut Lang’s men’s wear

Starting from the fall collection, Link Theory Holdings Co. Ltd. has appointed former Issey Miyake designer Naoki Takizawa to design Helmut Lang’s men’s wear.

Naoki Takizawa joined Issey Miyake in 1989. A native of Tokyo (born 1960), he studied at the Kuwasawa Design School.

Trained by Issey Miyake himself before his retirement, Naoki Takizawa continues his mentor’s legacy. Like his mentor, Noaki Takizawa experiments with fabrics and textures.

He also incorporates other elements such as music and dance into his fashion designs.

He took over the helm of Issey Miyake when his mentor retired in 1997.
