Top 30: Hussein Chalayan

F 2011

Above and below Hussein Chalayan. His collections always evoke avant-grade drama and tap into the border between fashion and art, truly the realm of costume. But they also create questions of wearability, which the designer resolves by proposing his clothes are for a future we will grow into.

S 2011

I like that most of his more complex pieces already look like artifacts, something from the past meeting the future, questioning where the human form meets the fashion form.


S 2009

I was excited to see the ad above not only for the great aesthetic but because so many avant garde designers resist the commercial.
