He has described religion as a “part of [his] DNA”, so it was no surprise that Riccardo Tisci’s dark and decadent collection was inspired by the rich iconography of his Roman Catholic roots.
Models stalked through incense-scented air in simple vestments that evoked Holy Communion. There was a dominant black-and-white palette, but also tunics updated in baby pink brocade, Jesus sandals embellished with thick gold chain, and sharp, sexy and sophisticated tailoring. Tisci’s Virgin Mary leitmotif will no doubt replace the rottweiler as T-shirt graphic of choice when it comes to commercial crossover.
In short A dark and deeply glamorous collection that remained accessible despite its opulence.
