Inspiration: Pajama Party! I was in attendance for Shayne Oliver and Raul Lopez’s latest Hood By Air presentation, called ‘Stiches,’ earlier this month during New York Fashion Week. Known widely for hip hop tees and plated caps, HBA has been the go to menswear line for club kids with strong influence over mainstream style. “Sleepy” models walked from behind striped black and white curtains into a field of green grass carrying HBA pillows wearing men’s denim night skirts. A collection filled with menswear remixes, androgynous skinhead performance artist Boy Child was the perfection model addition (in all white). Music by the critically acclaimed A$AP Rocky played in the background while the crowd feverishly snapped pics. His album is set to drop on October 31st. See more of the line http://www.hoodbyair.com/
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
