Hussein Chalayan

I haven't had too much time to explore the Spring collections yet
and what I have seen hasn't been totally awe inspiring. However,
these windswept structural pieces from Hussein Chalayan's inertia
collection are quite wild... They remind me a bit of an H.R. Giger
drawing, futuristic and a little alien.

This week I had a very good friend visiting from California and we
braved the madhouse that is Century 21 one afternoon (full of
foreign tourists). There I got to see some of Chalayan's pieces in
person - albeit from a few seasons back. With the current financial
downward spiral I didn't want to buy anything expensive (even with
the super Century 21 discounts), but it was fun to check out some
designer wares none the less.
