Hussein Chalayan has been in the game for 25 years and knows what he does best. Into the courtyard of his London flagship the boys walked in beautiful linens and carried mini boomboxes. Our kind of man. This was ‘Post-Colonial Body’ and was a look at how “colonial forces affected dance culture in South America,” Chalayan said backstage. A collection to move and groove in. Shirts were wide on the arms and shorts cuffed and rolled around the knees in shades of summery camel browns, crisp whites and midnight blues. Soft stripes lined most of the pieces and they walked with grace and ease, a real lightness to the clothes. Happy 25th bday, Chalayan. No quarter life crisis here.
