HELMUT LANG DEPARTURES: After eight years of handling the artistic control at Helmut Lang, creative directors Michael and Nicole Colovos have exited the company.

The firm does not expect to name a successor for a few months.

Andrew Rosen, chief executive officer of Helmut Lang and Theory, said, “I want to extend my sincere thanks to Michael and Nicole for their commitment to the house and its successful evolution into a leading force in the contemporary marketplace. I am confident in their future and wish them all the best.”

The Colovoses said, “We are grateful for the opportunity that Andrew gave us to reestablish Helmut Lang. We will always have a deep affection for the brand.”

Helmut Lang will develop its pre-spring 2015 collection with the existing design team. In hindsight, the title of the Colovos-designed fall collection may have been ominous. They called it “Rough Terrain.”
