Shayne Oliver, best known as the man behind cult brand Hood By Air, has just snagged the Swarovski Award for Menswear at the 2015 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards. With both Ariel and Shimon Ovadia of Ovadia & Sons; and Alex, Matthew, and Samantha Orley of Orley in the running, Oliver had some undoubtedly stiff competition.
After arriving to Lincoln Center with model Binx Walton by his side, there's no doubt that—win, or lose—Oliver was in one of the best looking squads on the red carpet.
Naturally, Oliver wore an HBA suit, his now signature lock-and-chain necklace, and a silver, spray paint-like "HBA" logo on the back of his head.
With this win, Oliver joins 2015 Menswear Designer of the Year winner Tom Ford, and "Fashion Icon" award winner Pharrell at tonight's award ceremony.
Congrats to Hood By Air and Shayne Oliver.
