The way he puts the architectural or structural elements on his garments is incomparable to anything. His pieces are visually cohesive in textural and structural elements, and you can make out his clever logic when even in the most extravagant silhouettes and shapes.

Origami is something that can be seen and forgotten very easily maybe because it is the simplest way of making any shape and its availability is universal. Then he takes the simple method and turns it into a complimenting forms worn on the body. The scaling it up, the simplicity is optimized. 

In Hussein's work I can see there are varieties of shapes and versatility may be inspired by everyday objects. I like this hooded coat for the possibility we may across this shape everyday but haven't realized that could be transformed as this part of something very much wearable.
