DRAPED, PIECED, SLASHED + TWISTED
Paris: Hussein Chalayan presented a stunning line-up of deconstructed ensembles. Twisted draping and dimensional piecing worked together with languid silhouettes, layering and loose tailoring to create an elegant aesthetic. Slashed gowns had a clawed effect – as if the whimsical fake nail appliqué had torn straight through them. – Deirdre Pérez
