Conceptual designer Hussein Chalayan’s ready-to-wear is as fit for the body as it is for exhibition. For his first solo exhibition, Chalayan’s work fits seamlessly and convincingly into the very modern environment of the Wolfsburg Art Museum. Originally conceived by and presented at the Groninger Museum in northern Netherlands , the show moved to Wolfsburg (the town Volkswagen calls home) over the weekend, where it will run through Feb. 15.
The retrospective begins with the rust-encrusted buried dress from Chalayan’s graduate collection for London Central Saint Martin’s in 1993, which was displayed in the window of London retailer Brown’s. It is the only disembodied piece in the grid-like and chronological journey through the topics and concerns, intellectual and stylistic, that have shaped Chalayan’s career.
