Hussein Chalayan, Scent of Tempest collection, autumn/winter 1997–1998. Chalayan’s somewhat provocative commentary on the contradiction between Islamic women’s dress and modern society was shown a year later in a collection featuring models dressed only in diminishing versions of the chador. This sweater with a slit mask was a forerunner, and created some controversy itself.
Knitwear in Fashion by Sandy Black
London-based artist Sandra Shashou, who primarily works in abstract painting and collage, ventures away from her usual mediums in her series, Broken, in which she creates sculptures from fine bone china, which she finds in markets and and breaks into pieces before “reinvent[ing] them in the form of a collage of broken china on canvas.”
She is a storyteller, and her artworks are oftentimes connected to the biography of a subject, through newspaper headlines and relevant objects. In Broken, “Shashou has taken this one step further to imbue each broken piece of china with a hidden wealth of history, value and meaning.”
You can purchase her work at Saatchi.
