Hussein Chalayan Collection Includes Shrouded Women

Always out there designer Hussein Chalayan’s spring 2011 collection in Paris included this number: a woman with a black piece of fabric over her head. A mini-burka? A solution to a bad mood/bad hair/bad makeup day? Or something more artistic? We may never know. Also, it’s available in white. [Style.com] Keep reading »

Watch Lady Gaga’s Crazy Dress “Dance” On Its Own


True story: I was at the Paris Spring ’07 show where Hussein Chalayan debuted groundbreaking animatronic couture dresses that moved on their own. Talk about a fashion moment. Now, I don’t recall Gaga being there (in fact — gasp! — she was relatively unknown back then), but apparently she was inspired enough by the legendary collection to work her own version onstage. Check out her gown and the cute surprise around the 2:55 mark. Also, anyone else here soooo reminded of those Chuck E. Cheese band members (uh, Jaspet T. Jowls ring a bell!?)? [Huffington Post]

Sneak Peek: Hussein Chalayan For Puma

When athletic brand Puma recently took on high fashion designer Hussein Chalayan as creative director, it was clear that Puma’s future collections would up its taste level—Chalayan is known for being overtly edgy through dressing eccentric characters like Bjork as well as incorporating crazy hijinks into his designs like remote-controlled layers and LED lights. Here’s a first look at “Urban Mobility,” the first collaboration between Chalayan and Puma, due out next spring, and wow, is it ever high-fashion. Looks like you can count on track jackets with graphic details and creative construction as well as pared down sneakers. While this preview of the campaign makes the line look about as far from athletic wear as possible, we’d expect that in real life, the pieces do show off their functionality more. Question is: Would you want to go running in stuff like this? [HighSnobiety.com]

Fashion Videos From Funny To Creepy

Yves Saint Laurent just released its Spring 2010 men’s video and the star is not so much an Adonis-like fellow complete with lovely face and six pack abs as it is, well, an 11 year old boy. But after you get over the initial shock and displeasure about the fact that you were turned on in advance and the grade schooler’s appearance made you feel kind of dirty, you’ll start to like the quirky little video. The kid is son of the director, Samuel Benchetrit, and the good ‘ol fashioned hijinks he gets up to at The Bristol Hotel after finding a key on the street are worth a brief at-work giggle. From writing on mirrors with ketchup to watching a bit of hotel TV porn and convincing Melinde, apparently the lover of the rightful renter of the hotel room, to fly to Paris, the little one gets stuff done.

Check out some more fashion videos after the jump, but keep in mind that they aren’t all this endearing… Keep reading »

Does This Low-Backed Dress Show My Butt Crack?

Designer Hussein Chalayan didn’t leave much to the imagination with this dress from his Fall 2009 collection. A super short mini-dress with a low back and leather insert that suggests exposed ass cleave? Something tells me Paris Hilton will be calling! [Trend de la Creme via Refinery 29] Keep reading »
