The iconic streetwear brand Hood by Air announced today that it would be going on hiatus. Effective immediately, the label's co-founders, Shayne Oliver and Leilah Weinraub, explained in a press release that they would both be pursuing independent projects.

"Weinraub is currently developing her film and directorial career with her upcoming project ‘SHAKEDOWN,’ included in the Whitney Biennial in May," the press release read. "Oliver will be devoting himself in the immediate future to his responsibilities at Helmut Lang."

In March, it was reported that Oliver would be working on a capsule collection for Helmut Lang.

The label maintains that it is not gone for good, and that it “will continue to fulfill its creative vision in the near future.”
