Hood by Air enters the mind set of the urban weirdo

New York: Shayne Oliver of Hood by Air presented a stellar avant-garde, street-ready collection for Spring 2015. This season the New York-based brand’s creative director, known for making a statement, enters the mind-set of “the urban weirdo, the urban thinker and the luxury held within the lack of reappropriation.” Streamlined silhouettes were enhanced by alluring cut-out constructions, bondage straps and buckle closures. –Deirdre Pérez
