One of my biggest heroes in the fashion world, Alexandre Plokhov of Cloak has decided to close up shop. The end of Cloak is undoubtedly a great loss to men's fashion, but it may not be that bad after all. A few months ago we posted rumors that Theory, which earlier in the year acquired the rights to the Helmut Lang brand, has been courting Plokhov to head up design at the [formerly] eponymous label. The closing of Cloak could be a sign that things are moving ahead for a re-tooled Helmut Lang, and I couldn't think of anyone better [besides Lang himself] to be at the helm.
