Riccardo Tisci Dons Haute Couture on Japanese Hologram Star Hatsune Miku

Ex machina gets handmade couture.

Riccardo Tisci’s new Japanese muse is none other than pop-music queen-cum-millenial pop star Hatsune Miku. Bonus, for the uninformed, she’s a holographic avatar built with software by Japanese media firm Crypton Future Media, Inc. “She’s so cool,” agreed Riccardo Tisci. “It’s insane — Japan is 20, 30 years ahead of the rest of us.” The designer’s one-on-one with Miku included custom couture-gown testing. “The outfit has multiple types of lace with some crocodile trim,” noted Tisci. Hatsune Miku’s North American tour starts April 23, whose songs are user-generated via crowd-sourcing.

This couture-avatar talk is perfect for Costume Institute’s upcoming “Manus x Machina” exhibition. Stay tuned for our MET Gala 2016 coverage.
