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.
