Show Review: Hood by Air Fall 2014
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

If there was any question whether Hood by Air creative director Shayne Oliver is changing fashion’s view of streetwear yesterday at 1:00, by 2:00, the industry had its answer. For the first time, the designer presented a collection of men’s and women’s looks, or rather looks for… people, as androgyny was the narrative thread that held this offering together.

Models of both genders came down the runway, most outfitted with a headband festooned with metal washers, from which long tracks of fake hair hung down, clad HBA’s roomy, zipper-laden fare. It was hard to tell sometimes who was a man and who was a woman. And I suppose that was the point.

As for the clothes, Oliver serves up street shapes and staples, re-imagined with a high-fashion flair. From the back of jeans hung swaths of fabric bearing the brand’s logo. There was lacing galore on oversized leather jackets, pants, and sweatshirts. Unzipped panels revealing peeks of flesh added a welcome dash of sex appeal. For fans of the trend, there was also plenty of denim, and hefty carryalls rounding out a couple ensembles.

But the real treat was at the end of the show, when a troupe of voguers emerged onto the runway, flicking their (very secure) wigs, flashing their hands and dipping. Oliver (who is an expert voguer himself) sadly did not join in, but I was, to say the least, very thankful for the display.

    I was at this show and wasn’t crazy about the line but the presentation was amazing between the runway set up, the music and the amazing dancers at the end. However the line should be the most amazing segment of a fashion show and unfortunately I wasn’t a fan.

    @Lauren

    Hmm.. i really liked the clothes. I thought they were different, although I don’t think i’d be able to pull them off.

    The set-up, n the other hand, I wasn’t too keen on. Thought the runway was too dark, and it was hard to see. Plus navigating those bleachers in my heels was a nightmare.

    The Voguers made up for it though :)

    Well, I liked the jacket with monochrome look on the blond Troy Polamalu
