Latin for "remember that you must die," the saying aptly describes the mood of Michele's collection. (One model even wore a pair of black pants that boldly featured the ominous phrase.)
Describing the collection, Michele said, "It's the idea of death as fascination." And, indeed, death was everywhere: models clutched funereal bouquets of wilted flowers as they sombrely marched past, with passages about the afterlife from Dante's The Divine Comedy embroidered onto their clothes.
Michele had looked to the ossuary as an inspiration, and one model's dress nodded more pointedly to that with an ornate, embroidered ribcage on its front. Guess it's safe to say "bury us in Gucci?"
