Hood By Air’s Cool Kids Descend on the Lower East Side for Its Most Exhaustive Sample Sale Yet

Photographed by Sean Williams

On an unassuming block of Ludlow Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, deep in the heart of Chinatown, a group of 20-somethings queued up outside what was once an electrical contractor’s office for the first day of Hood By Air’s surprise sample sale. Announced Monday, the five-day sale features pieces from the past five years of Shayne Oliver’s cult genre-defying brand, with each day curated to highlight a particular year. It was the perfect venue for a brand that’s no stranger to guerrilla happenings; last season, its show was sponsored by Pornhub. But the sale wasn’t just a chance for fans of the brand to score new pieces they might have missed the first time around; it also provided an opportunity to show off their best looks, including new-again Fila, plenty of metallics and fishnets, distressed denim, and luxe outerwear. See the highlights from the first day of the Hood By Air sample sale, here.
