#LFW CHALAYAN Autumn Winter 2017 Collection

Celebrated fashion designer Hussein Chalayan presented his Fall Winter 2017.18 CHALAYAN collection during the ongoing London Fashion Week


Our sense of universal personhood is in a state of flux. ‘Act to form’ is a collection inspired by looking at new, isolated individuals that the current world order is generating. The collection whilst attempting to uplift and empower also marks a sense of fake celebration of various events taking place around us. The Balkan era of Greek Folk culture is used as a symbol of historical empowerment throughout the collection, connecting today’s sense of world citizenship to the ideals of personhood stemming from European Phil-Hellenic sentiments of the early 19th Century. The shapes within the collection are generally loose and relaxed yet structured,there is also an emphasis on seaming and finishing details where different seam widths create disparate compositions on the surfaces.  Feminine dresses appear as though they are about to fall off the shoulders, purposely cut this way they are loose at the top, cinched at the waist. Some styles of this story are offered in a light, crisp felt juxtaposed with a fluid felt that follows the drape of the garment. – from Hussein Chalayan
