Hood By Air “Hallways” FW16 Presentation
Shane Oliver presented his FW16 Hood By Air ‘Hallways’ capsule collection in Los Angeles, CA during Made LA. Live streamed and available for preorder, the show was a post-apocolyptic encounter for attendees who stood surrounding a massive mound of sand as the performance stage.
Artist Yves Tumor opened the show, wailing a Bible verse, Psalms 23:1 and belting out ‘HBA’ in a rhythmic chant. A small army of models, casted by Walter Pearce, stomped over the mound, bumping into each other in a mosh-style runway. Each model sported a bloody cross, face painted across their foreheads, and donned the ready-to-wear capsule collection of graphic tees with exaggerated sleeves, red latex bellbottoms, leather overalls and cutout denim.
Audience members who were present at the surreal performance in all of its smoke, sandstorm, passion and glory, were granted a virtual moment into Oliver’s FW16 fiery realm.
