The chances of Madonna coming out with a new look for her tour may be the safest odds we’ve ever taken — but we’ve still been on pins and needles waiting to see it. Her Madgesty’s long-time costume designer, Arianne Phillips gave a sneak peek to WWD of the costumes for the Sticky & Sweet tour launching this month, and it’s a treasure trove of high-end design styles! Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci contributed several outfits, while Tom Ford provided bespoke suits for the band. Miu Miu and Stella McCartney are responsible for shoes, Moschino for the sunglasses, and sundry other pieces are coming from Yves Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli and Jeremy Scott. The first set of costumes reference both gangsta style and Art Deco with the pieces from Givenchy. Phillips tells WWD, “She’s not afraid of being hard.” Next up, ’80s-inspired pieces with vintage Keith Haring prints, gypsy costumes from Givenchy, and ending with a futuristic rave with a Japanese touch. As for Madonna’s affiliation with the young Tisci for her costumes, Phillips explains “Riccardo’s a new young talent. If you look at Madonna’s history with fashion, that makes him an obvious choice.” We say what’s so exciting about Madonna is that nothing is ever the obvious choice.
