Siting nineties underground music as his muse Riccardo Tisci has created a iconoclastic explosion—the personification of elitist disdain, what one would imagine if a couture gown were torn up and reimagined by an anarchist street kid. Layering and texture stand centerstage in this lineup, with a rebellious streak that is expressed in tulle, sequins, zippers and pearls. From pearl lined skirts to zig zagging zippered coats and pants, to micro cropped moto jackets and over-sized sequins, the out of the box touches lend an air of uncertainty. Clashing prints and asymmetrical lines further the unease, while playful ruffles in red, pink and white lend a sense of playfulness. Add super-sized lace up boots, star branded knee high socks and a variety of reimagined pumps and you have a revolt of the most fashionable kind. Perhaps a sign of the times but this is one collection will not go quietly in to that good night.
