#NYFW2014: Hood by Air F/W

The art of presenting Gothic Glam is one that has BEen perfected by famed designer, Rick Owens. But there is a new kid on the block and he’s kicking azz. Designer of the newest statement label, Hood By Air (HBA), Shayne Oliver, BEfittingly hails from NYC and owes his success to the will of not confirming but navigating through the not so welcoming society of the Brooklyn anti-gay streets.

For this F/W’14 collection, Oliver delivered untraditional runway models full of tattoos of all enthicities , shapes, and genders. I LOVE IT! The clothes were an extension of his oversized logos, buckles, exposed zippers, laced up knee high boots – in grommeted suede, denim, and leather.

The finale was definitely entertaining and statement worthy, set to a soundtrack of prrrrrr-cat, The Ha Dance, and commentating chants… SCROLL DOWN!  Shayne Oliver also released an online video to coincide with the show too, with the designer seeing it as a dedication to “All the FUCCBOI’s who shred the status quo with aggression and lush energies.”
