Designer Shayne Oliver’s Hood By Air is an idea, an attitude, a movement, encapsulated in clothing. His runway shows blur gender roles and re-assess the meaning of clothing in society. The graphic-heavy Hood By Air T-shirts and hoodies in our new Pop-In Shop are not only interesting to look at—they signify a progressive mindset embraced by the wearer.
Sound like a lot for mere clothes to accomplish? Keep reading to watch video commentary from Oliver and others, and see what you think for yourself.
