The Spring / Summer 2023 pre-collection is the second in a Friends & Family creative series in which Riccardo Tisci partners with exciting creators with a background. With this collection, Ricardo has partnered with Jared Buckiester, who also appeared on his runway show in the Fall / Winter 2022 collection. Jared is responsible for styling the collection and filming the lookbook, expressing his own interpretation of the collection theme and consolidating his creative identity.
“In a nutshell, my experience is simply fun. It’s very emotional to have such a strong team interested in and responding to the ideas I was asked to contribute. Well, it provided a margin for creativity. It was an ideal collaboration from the start and I was happy to be accepted as a contributor. Ricardo and I love the aesthetics of workwear. There is something in common in that. Many of my works as an artist are inspired by the masculine archetypes that dwell in these clothes. I immediately enjoyed working in this space and it was fruitful in my creation. Those who know Ricardo know that he is generous and sincere, which is why there are people around him who contribute to creativity. He has a keen eye for observation, so he doesn’t miss anything. The combination of this eye and generosity makes him the person who can find the ideas that best express himself as a collaborator. To be honest, it was a dream to work with him. Barbary is a symbol of British culture and, like punk and rave culture, is woven into my own concept of being an Englishman. With Ricardo and his friendship, Barbary has become more personal and tactical. Rave is just around the corner while maintaining a British core. . “
