Hood By Air RTW Fall 2014
In an androgynous collection, Shayne Oliver sent out a cast of real people on his fall runway — and at times, it was hard to tell the difference between the girls and the boys.
The directional unisex collection ranged from tonal logo-driven T-shirts and leather jackets to sweatpants and topcoats. Influenced by underground dance-hall balls, Oliver worked primarily in leather and suede. Deconstructed outerwear featured multiple zippers and Whipstitch details. In an attempt at tailoring, topcoats had cutout panels — a new twist for the designer.
He closed the show with a line of shirtless men in D-ring bondage denim pants, sporting wigs, dancing and flinging their hair back and forth.
