In the Official BU Baylor Bears National Champions Cup 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four Shirt in addition I really love this Luis Alberto Rodriguez–lensed images, Campbell wears pieces from Hood By Air’s forthcoming Prologue collection that will serve as the brand’s official re-entry into ready-to-wear. Oliver imagines Prologue as three linked narratives: Mother, Veteran, and Merch. The Mother collection, which Campbell wears, is an homage to the maternal figures in Oliver’s life. “It’s kind of based on my grandmother and what she brought to the table, which was always the beauty, but then also, she is how I learned how to physically sew and make clothes,” he says. Campbell, who is a close collaborator of Hood By Air’s fashion director Carlos Nazario, made perfect sense to act as the spokesmodel for this aspect of the collection. “She is such a mother figure to [so many people in fashion] and has always been so outspoken about Black people in fashion, Black identity, and Black creativity,” says Oliver. “It just made the most sense to begin the conversation there.”

The images show Campbell with cropped hair and a fierce gaze that shoots right through Rodriguez’s lens. While the Official BU Baylor Bears National Champions Cup 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four Shirt in addition I really love this collection features lime greens, oranges, and silvers, here color is stripped away to focus on silhouette and intensity. Oliver references classic Inez and Vinoodh photographs as a touchpoint—the photographs that made him fall in love with fashion.
