Spring/Summer is Coming: Tia Cibani Inspired by Game of Thrones’ Cersei Lannister
It’s no secret that fashion and TV have a special relationship—one only has to call to mind Sex in the City or Gossip Girl to recognize just how important fashion is to the aesthetic and narrative of television. In Tia Cibani’s spring/summer 2015 collection, it was apparent the fantasy-genre hit show Game of Thrones had some say in both the collection and beauty looks.
Models with long crimped hair and bejeweled head pieces looked almost exactly like Cersei Lannister –minus the cold, hateful stare– and flowing, loosely-draped clothes in rich colors echoed the rich aesthetic worn by various houses in Westeros its neighbors. The collection was both theatrical and fantastical while remaining wearable and contemporary. If this collection is any indicator of what’s to come this fashion week, it’s that hair crimping is coming.
