Ex­plor­ing the idea of es­capism and trans­port­ing the body to new places, Hus­sein Cha­layan came up with an el­e­gant col­lec­tion filled with origami-style folds, drapes, cutouts and pops of neon color.

He took in­spi­ra­tion from the great out­doors, and from sports such as ski­ing and horse­back rid­ing, work­ing them into clas­sic sar­to­rial shapes.

There were short, sleeve­less vests lay­ered over top­coats with big, quilted or origami-style folded patch pock­ets and drapey, cutout trousers worn with knee-high rub­ber boots. Neon printed and mi­cro-check, puf­fer-style jack­ets with folds at the front should shake up the slopes and the après-ski hang­outs with their cool shapes and col­ors.

Trousers came with elas­tic waists, and de­tails such as thick seams or gen­tle folds down the front. Out­er­wear and knits were strong, as in a but­tery black leather hoodie top and lineup of fine gauge neon bright turtle­necks in yel­low and pink. On a neon note, mod­els wore bright pink pops of lip color — meant to re­sem­ble ski block — on their lips, dove­tail­ing with the es­capist theme. —
