Designer Shayne Oliver delivered a gender neutral collection at Sunday's Hood by Air show at NYFW, telling WWD that his inspiration stemmed from growing up in an underdeveloped region of Trinidad. "It's this idea of being really educated, but not having access to what you're being educated about," he said backstage. "It's about school uniforms. The way our clothes would be ripped; the way we would create makeshift clothing; the way we would portray logos and formality, because certain [brands] weren’t available to us." The anti-fashion sensibility that suffused the presentation was evident on the men's side, with soft, pleated fabrics, used in deconstructed and dramatic pieces with exposed zippers and midriffs alike.
