One of the many brands coming to Blackbird for Fall/Winter 2008 is Hood By Air. This line got its start in 2006 when Shayne Oliver and Raul Lopez started selling their small collection of t-shirts in New York [worshipworthy.com]. Their collection of men's street-wear features pieces that cleverly interpret street fashion with a futuristic twist, like the clever snap sweatshirt below. Check out the short video of their Fall 2008 runway show, and keep an eye out for their goods on our blog this Fall.

***ADDED BONUS: We've gotta love a brand whose blog includes pics like this of Blackbird ex-manager and dear friend, Ari Cohen. We miss you Ari!
