TOKYO — 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 line.

“I’ve been a fan of Helmut Lang since the Eighties, so I approached president and chief executive Ricky Sasaki, who is an old neighborhood friend of mine, directly,” the designer said. “Helmut Lang is a ground-breaking brand that introduced a new kind of men’s style pairing T-shirts, jeans and middle-gauge knits with jackets. The brand is primarily worn by independent men who prefer a minimal style. Drawing from the brand’s heritage but also incorporating current fits, global sizing and my knowledge of materials and textiles, I want to address a void in the contemporary market.”
