Power Couple

Hamilton-born Nicole Colovos has been appointed joint design director of Helmut Lang with husband Michael, making her the first Australasian designer in history to head a major international fashion label. After fashion editing at Australian Elle and US Harper’s Bazaar, Colovos founded premium denim label Habitual with her American husband in 2002. Austrian Helmut Lang spearheaded the minimalist movement of the 1990s before selling his business to Prada in 1999. Helmut Lang is now owned by Tokyo-based company Link Theory Holdings. “We’re not Helmut Lang and aren’t trying to recreate what he did,” stated Colovos in Women’s Wear Daily. “There’s room to inject your own idea into it, and there’s a thread we will follow.”
