Hood by Air has officially gone on hiatus. Yes, really.

In a press release sent out late this afternoon, the brand announced that co-founders Shayne Oliver and Leilah Weinraub will be “focusing on their current projects.”

For Weinraub, this means working on documentary film SHAKEDOWN, which will be included in the Whitney Biennial come May.

Oliver, meanwhile, will be working on his special collaboration with Helmut Lang.

This is the second surprise (sad) announcement from the brand, which pulled out of Paris fashion week last month, and it's worth noting that, when we spoke to Oliver last June after HBA debuted a special performance and capsule collection during MADE LA, he said, "I think something’s happening in fashion right now. It’s time to remaster." He later alluded to the fact that he wanted to do more untraditional happenings with Hood by Air that exist outside the fashion cycle.

In the current unstable fashion climate, with brands shutting down left and right, one might think the worst for HBA, especially considering its co-founders are clearly consumed with other work. However, “hiatus” implies a temporary leave, and the statement that was released today said that the line “will continue to fulfill its creative vision in the near future”, so here’s to hoping that all is not lost.
