Hood By Air's 2016 Fall/Winter Collection Plays with Gender Fluidity

Find out how Shayne Oliver follows up to his post-apocalyptic haute couture show from Paris Fashion Week.

Following his post-apocalyptic 2016 fall/winter show in Paris, which coincided with the roster of menswear and haute couture runway presentations, Hood By Air’s Shayne Oliver continues to experiment with gender fluidity and conceptual designs. For his recent show at New York Fashion Week, the NYC-based designer showcases a selection of garments that feature his hallmark oversized silhouettes and boundary-pushing aesthetic. This time around, the program seems to featuring a reoccurring airport motif, with luggage tags and plastic wrap appearing in multiple looks.

The new range also plays with a diverse array of textures, from fur to raincoat material to latex. Largely utilizing a palette of black, white and red, occasional hues of green and yellow contribute eye-catching accents of color. Playing with well-recognized references, certain pieces reimagine The North Face logo while others make sports team citations. In typical HBA fashion, some looks seem to border on demonic although as a whole, the collection reflects Oliver’s signature ability to defy every norm and expectation.
