Hood By Air Unveiled An Intimates Collection At MoMA Last Night

Plus, a rare glimpse of the durag-backpack

October 31, 2014

Last night in the atrium lobby of The Museum of Modern Art, designer Shayne Oliver unleashed the third and final installment of Hood By Air's spring 2015 collection. Entitled "Id," the collection of nude-toned undergarments and monochromatic short suits, completed and complemented the "Ego" runway collection staged during New York Fashion Week, and the "Superego" presentation from Paris. While "Ego" dealt in safety-pinned, deconstructed suiting, and "Superego" in leathery womenswear and minidresses, "Id" touched upon punchy summer separates and logo-ridden intimates. Oliver also broke new ground in the accessories realm with the introduction of the durag-backpack: a Frankenstein-like creation that is exactly what it sounds like. The collection, presented in conjunction with MOMA's PopRally events initiative, was embedded between DJ sets from Gobby and Total Freedom, and live performances by Mykki Blanco and HBA's resident performance artist, BoyChild. Check out images from the night of art, fashion and, quite honestly—lots of fun—down below. Plus, a very rare glimpse of the durag-backpack.
