HOOD BY AIR – Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
HOOD BY AIR, headed by Shayne Oliver, is a brand on the rise and the way they have been pushing the boundaries of fashion just can’t be denied or ignored. Pieces in this collection are monogrammed button-down tops and an interesting concept of extra long shirts and jackets. Another creative and unique concept that we see from Oliver’s brand is the fact that there are shorts that tear away into even smaller shorts as well as straps that just hang.
Fans of the apparel will find a wardrobe that hits heavy with pattern recognition at first (i.e. shirts designed in the mode of football jerseys and elongated tops with the Paramount film logo printed across) and then later ventures into more avant-garde ideas, such as outfits inspired by Chinese paratrooper uniforms embellished with tubular accents. Such an exciting and fun collection by HBA makes one wonder why a designer would ever care to limit himself by practicality– fashion is a means of letting creativity flow extensively and from the looks of it, Oliver is letting his run wild.
