Chalayan Fall 2014 Takes Inspiration From a Home Office

Designer Hussein Chalayan has been exploring the concept of the new Chalayan Fall 2014 Collection titled, 'Through,' for a while now. The fall collection offers a fiercely abstract notion that produces concretely attractive clothing.

His inspiration is taken from his home office, and while it may scarcely suggest any promising fashion inspiration, his rendition of crumbling drywall is duplicated in gorgeous sharpei-like fake furs.

Angora, mohair and wool are intarsia-ed together in huge sweaters that look a pinch like flaking posters. The great print composed of makeup palettes have been fuzzed and abstracted with the addition of fringe, while the conversion of three dimensions into two is present in seamless draping.

The final organza dresses feature panels that peel back to reveal silvery, sinewy threads, which are almost intestinal, except they're beautiful.
