Among the twelve finalists announced last month for the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize is Shayne Oliver of HOOD BY AIR. The native Minnesotan is spotlighted in a new video profile, which sees the designer showing off a nubuck suede jacket that typifies his brand’s focus on rebellious energy while veering away from past streetwear elements. He also discusses why he didn’t fit in at F.I.T. during his formative years, and how leaving the esteemed fashion school allowed him to discover his own personal style.  Check out the video below, and look for the winner of the LVMH competition to be announced on May 28.
