Shayne Oliver has never been a stranger to experimenting with his fearless direction for Hood By Air. This New York Fashion Week, his collection titled “Pilgrimage” took on all forms of the word by taking cues from pilgrims, travel and utilitarian items used for excursions. Models wore 18th-century style curls along the sides of their faces, accessorized with HBA luggage tags and draped themselves in patent leather, PVC fabric and puffers usually worn during inclement weather.
