After infusing a modern femininity into nuns' habits for Spring 2013, Riccardo Tisci created a decidedly more masculine offering for Pre-Fall. His daywear tended toward sharp, clean lines and colorblocking, and pieces that lean on menswear staples (the notch-lapel cape in gray wool is a perfect example of this). That's not to say there weren't frills: a geometric appliqué decorated the edges of dresses and a sporty camel bomber jacket, and lace accents appeared on pants, skirts, and sweaters.

The evening pieces carried a little more flounce, attributable to the ruching technique used mainly on skirts, and to the controlled addition of ruffles.
