Wow, wow, wow. When Noel Stewart conjured up iridescent visors for Hussein Chalayan last Spring Summer, I was in heaven and now this season he has made a range of colour peak hats that stack up to form a rainbow. Separately each headpiece formed an awning for the show lights to cast a cosmic hue shadow across the girl's face like a buttercup reflection on your chin. Here are Noel's shots from prepping backstage and if you head over to my AnOtherLOVES you can see the spectrum slotted together. There you will also see the other stunning headwear collaboration that Hussein made with Palladium for silver metal hair wigs which are equally genius.
Prior to Hussein Chalayan's show, Noel was on set of the Gareth Pugh presentation with the long flowing sheer Mantilla veils that formed the silhouette of the opening sequence. Now he is holding a showroom for his own SS13 collection which you can see in the final shot here ............. at 54 Rue Du Faubourg Saint Honore 75008 until 3rd October, 10am - 7pm by appointment only. (Thanks to Noel for his beautiful backstage imagery)
