We just got word that Uniqlo is collaborating with Helmut Lang on a "sweat collection" designed by Alexandre Plokhov. Thus far, no additional details have been revealed and no preview images have been released, but if the loungewear is anything like Helmut Lang's regular line, this is gonna be good. It will debut for fall/winter 2014.
Plokhov, formerly of Cloak, was recently tapped to helm Helmut Lang's menswear. Brand CEO Andrew Rosen said of the choice, "He loves what he does, and his attention to detail and craftsmanship is amazing."
