In the Mood for Hood

Almost sinister and a bit unsettling, yet so powerfully mysterious and even somewhat glamorous (imagine Grace Kelly in one), the hood is. Cloak-ed, it looks wilder and fantastical. Anyhoo, here’s to share bits of “hooded” editorials from Philippines’ Imagine, Brit Vogue and I-D magazines.

I almost forgot to mention that it’s an option for bad hair days and that it’s a good headgear for the cold weather and quite the best alterna for hats. Sometimes, too, it’s just nice to half-hide your face just ‘cos. (Must fashion be this practical? What would your boss at work think if you face him with an explanation for yesterday’s undelivered task in the partial concealment of a hoodie? Would your colleagues think you want to join them for lunch? Or would they think that you want to skip lunch and stay at your desk to check your Facebook status? Hmmm...)

BONUS DETAIL: The "Prehistoric" History of the Hoodie. LOL.

I died at the first and third images. Caped hoods are so overlooked.
