Thomas Tait showed his Fall 2015 collection in total darkness, with strategic moments of light illuminating the clothes. Shrouded in the shadows, it was apt that Tait found his inspiration in the films of giallo maestro Dario Argento. Tait manipulated low-res screen shots from Argento’s Suspiria into patches printed onto dresses and scarves. But gothy horror shtick wasn’t the case here. Rather, with slick PVC elbow-length gloves and silhouettes that alternated between sleek and sculptural and asymmetrical and languid, Tait put forth a streamlined retrofuturism. Tait won the inaugural LVMH Young Designer Prize earlier this year, and his use of volume, sharp tailoring, and color has long set him apart. This season felt way more wearable than in the past, but with minimal metal hardware, patchworked leather, and intricate seaming, the clothes didn’t lack complexity. A mink coat with leather inserts, white tunic and pants combo, seamed mustard topcoat with pleating, and a floor-length, clingy tomato red knit dress caught our attention.
