Dear Shaded Viewers,
WHo doesn't love Agatha Christie? Murder on the Orient Express was the impulse behind the recent fall/winter collection of CHALAYAN. Of course in the hands of Chalayan it is more an abstract concept than a case of literal story telling. THere were fur coats with sliced off arms, cloche hats and my favorite were the streamlined and slender evening dresses. A little blood, a little rope, and above all immaculately crafted clothes.
