Kanye West Teases Yeezy Season 2 via Twitter

Yeezy Season is Approaching!


Yeezy Season 2 is on it way and from the sources we here this collection won’t have anything to do with adidas originals. The show which no one knew would be scheduled has now disrupted designers plans for NYFW as we are told many do not like that Kanye is allowed to be added to such a hefty list of shows that was already booked for NYFW. But guess what, Yeezy gets what he wants and that means he will be presenting his Yeezy Season 2 collection Wednesday at Skylight Modern on 537 West 27th Street and Vanessa Beecroft will perform. This is very dope news for Yeezy fans and lovers of high-fashion x street-wear.

Hood By Air 2016 Spring/Summer NYFW Collection

Hood By Air gives us zippers, strips and more at NYFW


Hood by Air was at NYFW to debut their 2016 spring/summer collection and by the looks of things the collection was not surprising at all. Shayne Oliver drew inspiration from something a bit different for his collection this time as he say’s “It was all about childhood in the Caribbean. And growing up around uniforms. We had such high education, and we couldn’t do anything with it—high education and low living quarters. So it was about cutting up and altering that school uniform, as we did”. The collection featured multiple pieces with leather, zippers and strips, neoprene body suits and silk dresses were seen on the men with a dash amount of makeup. The collection might have left many a bit confused by who was who in gender walking the runway but at least Shayne got his point across. Check out some of the images of the Hood by Air spring/summer 2016 collection presented at NYFW in the gallery below.

Hood By Air Spring 2016 features a Nike Air influenced high heel


Amongst avant-garde looks and inventively proportioned clothing items, Shayne Oliver creative director of Hood By Air seems to have taken inspiration from a retro and classic Nike model with the creation of a new pair of Woman’s heels. At the recent Hood By Air New York Fashion week show, models strutted down the runway donning multiple color-ways of heeled shoes with the word “AIR” highly visible on the side panelings. Sneaker enthusiasts and people paying attention to kicks in the mid 90s remember the Nike Air More Uptempo with admiration and reverence. Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen chose the Uptempo as his signature sneaker and the shoes transitioned successfully to massive off court appeal. Hood By Air has a history of reinterpreting classic Nike models, earlier this year the brand meshed classic Nike Huarache like tooling with the storied Timberland boot construction.

Shayne Oliver decided to pair his creatively invigorated designs with new showings of officially branded Nike Air sneakers as well, outfitting both female and male models in the Nike Air Flight 89. The Flight 89 was briefly available on Nike ID last year. The first sneaker to bear the “Air Flight” title, 1989’s air flight displayed an innovative design and completely influenced the coveted Air Jordan 4 with it’s distinct look and striking midsole. Hood By Air as a brand has always melded the worlds of streetwear and urban style with a high fashion detail and presentation, dedicating itself to an aesthetic a host of other designers also used this recent New York Fashion week. View more images of the Nike Uptempo inspired heels and shots of a few progressive high fashion Air Flight 89 pairings in the gallery below.
