Hood By Air founder Shayne Oliver has designed an impressive new collection for Italian outerwear label Colmar. The collaborative project, Colmar A.G.E, (which stands for Advanced Garment Exploration), features a set of stand-out, transformative pieces arriving in a palette of black, gray, rose pink, and lime yellow.

The collection contains four fully convertible jackets and an eyebrow-raising pair of quilted trousers, defined by intricate construction, tonal hardware and transitional elements. For example, the gray and black "Christye" down jacket in slide #3 has four arms so it can be worn in alternating colorways, while the remaining arms hanging off the back for a truly avant-garde silhouette.

Similarly to the Hood By Air founder's season at Helmut Lang, where he served as a designer-in-residence, Oliver's innovative and experimental design language has resulted in some wild, one-off creations. Oliver's not the only designer to rework pieces for an Italian outerwear label recently — this collection follows from Craig Green's highly experimental collaboration with Moncler.

Check out the collection in the gallery above and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
