Last night we strolled over to Terrence Koh’s Asia Song Society gallery in Chinatown, a small but appropriate space on Canal Street where we caught Matthew Stone taking a nap a year ago. Brooklyn banjee boys and clothing designers, Shayne Oliver and Raul Lopez, presented their Gigolow and Bird videos, a thematic series that corresponds to their Hood by Air Spring 2009 line rightly entitled “bondage.” Hood by Air’s suggestive taste and playful antics made for one of the more intriguing runway shows at Fashion Week this year, drawing out a few roped and barred models. For those interested in purchasing or just experiencing the pieces for themselves, a Hood by Air pop-up shop will be hosted at the gallery through the weekend.
