Fashionista | How Hood By Air's Shayne Oliver Captivated The Fashion Industry

Shayne Oliver, the 26-year-old Minnesota-born, Trinidad and Brooklyn-raised creative behind Hood By Air, has gotten quite a bit of recognition from the fashion establishment over the last year. In the past six months alone, he's been recognized as one of the top new kids on the block both nationally, as a nominee for the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Menswear, and internationally, as a runner-up for the inaugural LVMH Prize.

But even before the fashion establishment took notice, Hood By Air became a cult favorite of in-the-know cool kids and celebrities like Kanye West, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna. Product drops at hip retailers like Vfiles sell out within hours (the label is also stocked in Harvey Nichols in Hong Kong, Sneakerboy in Australia, Dover Street Market in New York and Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles).
