LONDON — Hussein Chalayan is preparing for his first solo show in Britain, an exhibition that will feature some of his greatest hits and inspirations from the past 15 years. He admits it’s a big deal, but he’s staunchly refusing to use the r-word.
“I’m too young for a retrospective. I mean, I’m only 38 years old,” Chalayan said over an afternoon coffee in the buzzy dining room of The Zetter hotel in London’s Clerkenwell. “It’s more like an art show — with clothes.”
