And this just suddenly became the coolest collection of the week! So completly awesome in motion, thanks for posting the video!

There are many looks that do absolutely nothing for me, I hate the wide-legged pants especially, but I like quite a few of the more wearable, basic pieces here. And of course the transformable looks are stunning!

Amazing, stunning show. I am totally smitten with those oversized, deep cuffed denim trousers.

Mind = BLOWN. Not just with the transformation gowns, but with the movement and reflections of all of those beautiful fabrics. Wow, wow, wow. So good.

Unpopular opinion, but I've never been able to bring myself to really like his work. Everyone seems really impressed and I want to be impressed too, but I look at this collection and feel nothing.

Most of the collection may not be as amazing as much of his past work, but those three transforming dresses may be his greatest achievement to date. It seems like all those years he fixated on this idea of transformation ( with robotics, and furniture, and rows of models in progressive versions of the same outfit) have finally refined themselves into what look to be actual wearable garments, that transform completely with a single gesture, that's huge!

It's incredible how fluid the transformations are too, it looks like CGI, I can hardly believe my eyes.

I do wonder if the dresses fold back up as easily as they unfurl, but the man is a treasure!

it really does look cool how he was able to do that....it looks like liquid pouring into some form of a heavier liquid. it does seem the collection has something to do with physics and forms of matter?

Awestruck! Haven't been following Chalayan since four, five years ago since he got into financial trouble and with the contrived Puma collab and what nots, but this is really good, from the prints to the construction to the fluidity of the clothing, it really looks so constructed, yet flowy. These are clothes for the quiet, artistic, thinking women!
I especially like how the models transform the clothes with force, very cool.

So amazing. I'm so so happy to see those transforming dresses. It takes me back to when i first discovered his work. mind blowing, really. the fluidity in which they move.. it doesnt even look real. the prints work amazingly aswell. one of my favourite collections of the season without a doubt.
