The VSP Chalayan Spring/Summer 2015 capsule collection will be launched in tandem with the official inauguration of the VSP Paris Flagship store during Paris Fashion Week in September 2014.
“VSP Chalayan”, a capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2015, will see VSP’s signature leather and special fabrics, from delicate cottons to linens, reinterpreted by fashion visionary Hussein Chalayan for a series of twenty unique womenswear pieces.
The line, ranging from dresses to jackets, is influenced by divergent forms and innovative structures, melding artistic and architectural references, and positioning feminine shapes through diverse dimensions to create brave new forms.
VSP is pleased to announce a three-season collaboration with Hussein Chalayan, one of the leading
names in the world of fashion.
Kadri Soygül, CEO and creative director of VSP mentioned his excitement about this collaboration with Hussein Chalayan and highlighted that VSP’s identity and Chalayan’s creative vision are similar in that they find their inspiration from different domains of art which makes this collaboration a perfect match. The collaboration embodies VSP’s passion for design with artistic and architectural references.
“VSP usually focuses on minimalist design rich with sophisticated details. While challenging the limits, our contemporary feminine forms always stay timeless. Our similarly asymmetrical thinking led us to cross paths with Hussein Chalayan, and that chance meeting gave birth to the VSP Chalayan collection,” says Soygül.
“Our collaboration with a fashion designer and artist like Hussein will not only bring a new dimension to our brand, but to the innovative luxury market in general”, Soygül added
Inspired by ideas drawn from disciplines not readily associated with fashion, Hussein Chalayan creates designs that combine fashion with art.
Of this collaboration, Chalayan said, “I am truly honored and excited to be collaborating with VSP to produce the VSP Chalayan collection. First of its kind for the Chalayan brand, I feel that the collection will be a strong culmination of design, innovation, craftsmanship, playfulness and desirability.”
The inspiration of the pieces are a reflection of the Chalayan House Language but is also aligned with existing VSP Aesthetic, culminating in a collection which would have never existed without this collaboration”, Hussein Chalayan added
VSP will open their Paris Flagship in the Marais fashion and arts district (19, rue Debelleyme 75003) in August 2014
