In a glorious change of pace, over a thousand people sauntered onto Pier 26, including eight hundred citizens who were lucky enough to gain access to this normally industry closed show. Designer Riccardo Tisci brought his show to New York this season to celebrate the opening of the brands new flagship store on Madison Avenue (which if you haven’t been to yet, you need to check it out). The runway was littered with what I liked to call underwear as outerwear. A bevy of silky slip dresses and camisoles adorned with strips of lace sauntered down the runway, sitting lightly on top of of wide leg pants and elegantly covered by tuxedo and kimono style jackets. You couldn’t deny the elegance of the event, especially when Tisci introduced a re-interpretation of some of his famed couture creations from over the years, with models faces adorned with intricate metal pieces and lace. While not every soul is going to jump on board with the barely-there pieces, the edgiest of fashions elite will no doubt jump at the chance to rock out in black and white. Check out select images from the show after the jump.
