Hussein Chalayan, Between collection, spring/summer 1998. Bound arms recur as a motif in the collections, indicating restriction, and are sympathetic to the static, meditative style of presentation favoured by Chalayan. Jersey fabrics are either used to bind or are cut away in large sections, as in the printed jersey dresses of winter 1998, with side cut out in oval shapes. In this ‘Cocoon’ dress, an amusing concession to practicality is made in the in-built mittens, reminiscent of a space suit.
