HOOD BY AIR ‘GALVANIZE’ SS 16 – BY ALICE DEVELEY

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

Punk is not dead. Hood by Air has raised  the universe of goths to the dignity of high fashion. Assuming  slit skirt and a rubber suit for his male models, at the very moment when the question of sexes is being asked, Shayne Oliver has pulled down the walls of fashion. « To my mind, this is not a question of female or male clothes, but a question of a world where beings can live in harmony ». Under a summer sun, close to the Philharmonie of Paris, the artist has mixed with perfection diferent looks : gothic, rap, metal, punk and even a classic one with straight shirts and functional coats. With models appearing to be coming out of a Stanley Kubrick movie with retractors letting visible gums, the designer has proposed a daring but a breathtaking collection. There is a revolution coming and Hood by Air is the master of the street.

Best,

Alice
