Hussein Chalayan offers a fresh reinterpretation of the sneaker with his unisex Hybrid Collection made in association with Sergio Rossi.
Fabrics utilized range from nylon puffa to leather and suede. The Hussein Chalayan 2009 Fall Hybrid Collection is also offered in the neutral color palette of taupe, black, coffee, neutral and white.
Implications - Taking clothing pieces back a notch, designers are now refraining from using too much color and are instead incorporating neutral and nude shades into clothing and accessories, allowing those purchasing these items to personalize them however they please. As companies use this as an example to create other simplistic products, they will be able to reach out to a broader audience that likes their products personalized.
