germany - seriously! where have i been in the last few days? I JUST FOUND OUT THAT PUMA HAS SIGNED HUSSEIN CHALAYAN AS THEIR NEW CREATIVE DIRECTOR!!!!!! this is BEYOND huge. this is actually just beyond beyond. sorry if i am rambling here, or too keen on this news but the fact is chalayan is one of the greatest creative talents in our time and i can see him doing AMAZING things at puma. he will be in charge of designing, and creating sportswear collections for the german based company. this is such a win-win situation because puma in turn will be supporting chalayan's nacme sake line by pumping much needed cash into his collections. this is SUCH a crazy time in fashion right now because as you know, chalayan's fellow central saint martins graduate, kim jones, also made a similarly unexpected move to alfred dunhill. between these two, it's safe to say we can look forward to some pretty exciting collections from puma.
above are some of my favorite looks from chalayan's fall 2008 collection. do you see what i'm talking about? this guy is just good! (airkisses to style.com. i live for this site.)
