Hood By Air was the cult brand of the year. In a few short months, HBA became an acronym any style-conscious person knew, and seats at the brand's two NYFW shows were some of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in NYC (Kanye got a seat). And while individual pieces from the label were co-signed by some of the biggest celebs out there, designer Shayne Oliver pushed a vision that was both embraced by fans and challenged the very notion of what a T-shirt, denim, or brand loyalty could be. If Hood By Air continues to evolve and land in more retail doors, things are going to get real exciting, real quick.
