Hussein Chalayan, A/W 2004-05 ‘Anthropology of Solitude’
Wrap Neck Knitted Jumper


This collection named ‘Anthropology of Solitude’ looked to use the garments to propose the combination of elements of the biological, national and universal self. He aimed to hone in on the already stark contradictions rooted inside the existing social structures. Focusing on the technology within the time of production, Chalayan chose to use the Sony Walkman as an example to show the autonomy of the growing technological drive in society, he did so by issuing a pocket measured exactly for the device.

Here we have a great example of the subtle design from the team and Chalayan himself. Constructed out of a wonderful red knit with a white backing showing through, details include a wrap around Japanese style collar detail and a front kangaroo pocket.
