In Riccardo Tisci’s never-ending quest to see men in skirts, the Givenchy designer has designed some um…interesting pieces for the ballet.

Riccardo’s creations will appear in the Opéra Garnier in Paris, when Belgian choreographers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet premiere their take on Maurice Ravel’s Boléro.

A total of 11 dancers will be wearing Riccardo’s designs during the show. The unisex outfit consists of a long black cape and flowing dress made of nude tulle. Underneath are skin-tone cat suits embroidered with white lace to mimic the human skeleton.

When describing why he decided to design the Boléro costumes this way, Riccardo said:

Boléro’ is all about intensity. The music has such an intense feeling. I wanted the dancers to feel naked somehow.” 

Check! And check!
