Hussein Chalayan autumn / winter 1998
The aesthetical provocations of Hussein Chalayan border of the naturalism of the naked woman body, as it is in his shocking models from 1998 (gradually denuding from below, but constantly veiled from above).
There are significant his inventive and definitely ethnical influenced interpretations of the ornaments for head – yashmaks, kerchiefs and helmets, in which the Islam customs sublime significant veils and veiling, as it is in the collections “Between” and “Panoramic”. Whether he will use kerchiefs or PVC masks it’s all the same. In all the cases it’s about one monotonous identity that erases human individuality and the possibility to be different.
