The Hussein Chalayan Spring 2014 collection features a nautical theme of blue-and-white stripes, crisp whites and wide-brim hats. The entire collection will make you wonder why you’re not lounging on a deck, sipping a mimosa. Nothing is overly structured, with flowing dresses, plunging necklines, thigh-high slits and gauzy materials.
The most unique piece, however, is probably a delicate umbrella that’s modeled to look like a floppy, wide-brimmed hat. Another stand-out piece is a nautical tube dress that opens into a strapless white bathing suit adorned with a cape-like fixture. To inspire some fun, Chalayan throws in a few colorful pieces: most notably a cheeky, confetti-inspired spaghetti-strap dress (and matching coat) that flaps and shimmies as you walk. Ultimately, this collection is luxurious, yet fun.
