Hussein Chalayan Is Returning to Menswear-------
Hussein Chalayan is on a hot streak. If you’ll remember, last season he began his new role as the creative director of Vionnet Demi-Couture. He just created the costumes for the L.A. Phil’s Così Fan Tutte, and today WWD reports that after eight years, the designer is reviving his dormant menswear collection. For Spring ’15, Chalayan, known for his cerebral approach to design, will release a twenty-two-look menswear capsule comprising T-shirts, outerwear, sweaters, sweatshirts, and shirting. “We had a really good following,” he said, “especially in the worlds of art and architecture, and our customers haven’t stopped asking about it. Some are still wearing their old clothes.” Surely his fans will be thrilled that they can soon pick up some new threads, but it’s nice to be reminded that good design never goes out of style.
