KEY COLLECTIONS: Hussein Chalayan, Spring/Summer 1995

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Hussein Chalayan’s Spring/Summer 1995 collection, entitled Temporary Interference, was his second commercial collection. It contributed to establishing Chalayan not only as a fashion designer, but as a philosopher and artist for whom clothes are a medium for provoking questions and symbolizing complex notions about human ambition. With this collection, Chalayan explores man’s ill-fated attempts to elevate himself to the status of the divine. Helium-filled balloons pull full-length slip-dresses upwards towards the heavens, and oxidized, buried cloth signifies the fall back down to earth.
