2014 was something of a breakout year for Hood by Air‘s Shayne Oliver, as the designer — still in his twenties — was a a CFDA nominee and the runner-up of the inaugural LVMH Prize. HBA looks to keep the momentum going in 2015, shaking up the Florentine men’s fashion show Pitti Uomo on Thursday night with an edgy collection, one that strayed from the event’s traditional sartorial lane. That doesn’t mean Oliver wasn’t mindful of his surroundings, explaining that he was pushing luxury precisely because he was showing at Pitti. Consequently, he made topcoats a focal point, but there were still plenty of unexpected and unconventional details, ranging from incongruous fur and quilted nylon paneling to ’70s-era platform boots. “Everything needs to be made tailored,” Oliver stated, “but it needs to be for us.”
