He made quite a splash when he came into the fashion scene in 1999, but Miguel Adrover has been MIA ever since…until now.

The Spanish designer, hailed as a superstar before losing his financial backing and ducking out of the fashion world in 2004 to run a café in Majorca, will return to New York Fashion Week next month with a bevy of new projects, Women’s Wear Daily reports.

On February 11, Adrover will hold a presentation for his eponymous collection at Teatro Latea, a theater on the Lower East Side. Details are few for now, but we’re expecting something seriously out of the box. In addition to showing that line, he’ll present a capsule collection for the eco-friendly German label Hessnatur, a brand he started collaborating with in 2008.

His earth-friendly ventures don’t end there, though. The designer has created an organic t-shirt as part of the label Savage Senses’ brand-new limited-edition collection, which will be unveiled February 12 at Jimmy at The James hotel.

“I've always been socially conscious,” Adrover told FashionEtc last year. “I've always worked with the concept of sustainable fashion, even in my early work. Now my challenge is to find great eco-friendly materials to work with and design a line that sells, but that the fashion world also recognizes. That's the next step; that's the baby we're trying to create.”

Is this the beginning of a glorious comeback for Adrover? We’ll certainly be watching.
