On Ricardo Tisci

Ricardo Tisci confuses me. His most recent couture collection is really one of his best. It was restrained, wonderfully detailed, and beautifully presented. However, if he was able come up with ten knock-out couture dresses, why are his ready-to-wear collections so drab in comparison?

I understand a need for some consistency and marketability but his formulae are getting completely predictable. Wrangle some shorts, tights, a shirtless dude, a visual gimmick, some “street cred” and you have your menswear collection. Severely cut white and black fabric–maybe some red and a pastel? Shear? Leather? Maria Carla Boscono? And of course some kitsch to close out the show. There you go, ladies.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s obvious he has talent. With this method he’s able to create some memorable looks to be gushed over by fashion bloggers and scrolled through on countless Tumblr pages. But clawing to be the e-buzz of the season by pandering to existing tastes instead of looking forward can only get you so far. Perhaps the rumored move to Dior will reveal his more innovative side.

    I believe everything published was actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not good, but
    suppose you added a title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean On Ricardo Tisci is kinda plain. You
    could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post titles
    to get viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve
    got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
