The designer staged an unorthodox presentation, creating a wooden prison hung with religious iconography, stocking it with honest-to-goodness convicts and lighting the place with neon crosses.
Fausto Puglisi staged an unorthodox presentation today, creating a wooden prison hung with religious iconography, stocking it with honest-to-goodness convicts, lighting the place with neon crosses, and perfuming it with church incense.
The models walked a short runway for photographers, then clambered up and down the stairs of the set. [...] According to Puglisi’s invitation, it was designed to showcase his abiding obsession with his roots in Sicily-its Catholicism, the many conquests that have occurred there, the local propensity for ostentatious dress.
