    really lovely collection from Chalayan. And I'm happy he's moving away from that overly conceptual...overly scientific aesthetic. He's become such a romantic now.

    There's some pretty dresses in this too. It actually has a pyjama feel...

    I really like the shirting in this. Especially the one's with the banded cuff.

    Simple, comfortable, unpretentious. I like this a lot. The entire show is up at style.com.

    From what I see, I really like. I especially like that first outfit. Looks to be a fantastic collection and I adore the colors.

    Sorry, but his conceptualising which translated into gorgeous, unique and WEARABLE clothing is what I loved about Husseyn. This is not it. I like several looks (especially the black), but nothing to make me say WOW, they way I used to every time I saw his collections. This is not art, this is clothes. Looks like Husseyn is moving to the commerical side because he needs to survive financially, and I can't really blaim him for it. Too bad. But I'm sure he'll still sneak his aesthetic here and there.

    they are lyrical and poetic and work beautifully into the softly draped fabric...that's what i'm talkin 'bout...lovely...

    I'm sorry, but IMHO this outfit looks like something one would wear while in a hospital :ninja:

    Hospital-chic is cool Nemova :wink:

    Faust,I agree with you completely. I just feel because he has shifted into that territory of commerce(I wonder if he'd take that as an insult??),his last two were not very good. Especially the latter. This one is so much better in comparison.

    Of course,I wish he'd do another collection in similar vein as his A/W 02 collection. In fact,I wish he would just find a style and stick to it. Take a cue from Ann D. or Dries.

    actually...this past fall...or the one that's actually in stores now... is OUTSTANDING...there are many pieces that were not on the runway and they are so beautiful in a minimalist way...

    maybe that will be the case with this collection as well...who knows...

    i don't know. on the one hand, i thought his presentations before were completely over the top besides being wholly unnecessary as they added NOTHING to the clothes. but i think that he needed a little more imagination here. perhaps another arty show would have focused this collection a little more. bc the way it is, it just looks like a cop out. i mean it's cool and different, but altogether boring.
