Favorite of the Day: Hussein Chalayan

At times, it can be hard to imagine clothing as art. Yes, a simple tee does little to inspire anything beyond simple thought or inspection, but there are designers capable of creating something that takes one a bit deeper. Much like Jaeger London, the Hussein Chalayan show featured a play on proportions. Yet instead of simply working within the realm of classic pieces such as peacoats, Chalayan's creations wandered back and forth between mere clothing and sculpture.

Sleeves belled. Dress back appeared to be inflated. Tops billowed with pleats. It looked otherworldly while also being of this time and place.
