>> In the past few seasons, Riccardo Tisci has been something of a patron saint for leopard print. But for Pre-Fall 2011, he's putting it away in favor of a digitalized armadillo print — because, as he says, “Everyone is doing animal prints these days." Tisci also gave one of his favorite colors to work with a rest: "I didn't touch black on purpose. Brown is the new black." The resultant collection, full of the aforementioned brown, along with purples and creams, was shot on three of Tisci's current favorites — Lea T., Saskia de Brauw, and Izabel Goulart — with a snowy West Village street serving as their background.
