Riccardo Tisci X MTA: April Fool’s Day Banter
Earlier today, our friends at Complex reported the launch of a rather unusual collaboration, Givenchy God, Riccardo Tisci would be redesigning some uniforms for the workers of the Metropolitan Transit Authority. According to the facetious facade, the project was orchestrated after Tisci and Bloomberg hooked up via Jay-Z at a Nets game. An elaborate slideshow saw MTA workers – decked out in Givenchy kit, all animal graphics and tropical prints – going about their daily business. Taking the idea of underground high fashion quite literally, the MTA X Givenchy line would have given the New York subway some serious swag . . . if only the Riccardo Tisci MTA uniforms were real.
