Perhaps the most surprising thing an important designer can do is to stop making fashion. Both Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela quit around the age of 50, after selling their businesses some years earlier. Both have since become artists, though Margiela was deeply involved in a 2018 museum retrospective of his designs and also a documentary. This week, Raf Simons announced he will end his label after 27 years; his spring 2023 collection will be the last.
