Hussein Chalayan SS09

This collection is so sick!"It's about the speed in our lives and how it can only result in a crash," Chalayan explained, adding that the prints, which included number plates, car handles, and fenders, were "taken from pictures of car graves." The idea of speed was also manifested in the molded latex dresses that appeared to be frozen in aerodynamic motion. They reminded me a lot of some cycling helmets that are shaped similarly for aerodynamics. The color palette was very well thought out and those lense-less geometric shades were a pretty nice compliment to the futuristic fashions.
