Hussein Chalayan

February 18, 2009

This is a part of the amazing s/s 09 Inertia collection of Hussein Chalayan.                                In an interview on “Dazed & Confused” he explains the concept of the collection: “The whole thing is based on speed, and “crash” as a result of speed. It’s to do  whith the speeding up of the economy, the speeding up of how we move around, and then it is about the consequential crash. What I wanted to capture in the collection was a sense of speed also being contradicted by slow growth, so it’s an amalgamation of images of crashes ad these organic things that grow on the body. The final pieces are based on the idea of cause and effect in one, the speed and the crash in one dress.”

The “video Dress” (part of the a/w 07 Airborne collection) is made of  15’ooo LEDs embedded in the fabric.
