NEW YORK — It’s all systems go for the return of the Helmut Lang label this spring, after its new owners and design directors tested the waters with two capsule collections. The 85-piece men’s sportswear collection, which consists mainly of lightweight wovens in a serene palette of neutrals, olive and sapphire, will be ready for viewing this week in a new Chelsea showroom.
Designers Michael and Nicole Colovos have taken care to put their own spin on the brand, which Link Theory Holdings bought from Prada last year. (Founder Helmut Lang has been keeping a low profile since walking away from his disputes with Prada management.)

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
