Riccardo Tisci lightened up his trademark gothic vibe with this military-inspired yet still ultra-feminine collection. Sharp tailoring and blingy gold studs were offset by dreamy chiffon gowns for a refined, elegant show.
Some of the standout pieces were the perfectly slouchy pants and jackets done in navy and winter white with gold buttons or pyramid studs – there was a definite nautical vibe to the daywear. For evening, however, Tisci went for hyper-feminine with elaborately pleated dresses and skirts in ivory, black, and blush-colored chiffon.
Hair was loose and center-parted, and makeup was kept very clean, with pale pink lips and minimal eyes. The accessories were just as simple, with over-the-knee leather boots or lace-up sandals paired with everything, and a few gold trimmed leather bags. This simplicity let the architectural design of the clothes stand out in the best way possible.
