Visible Influence: Luxury Graphic Tees, Hoodies, and Sweatshirts, Animal Graphics, Religious Imagery, High-End Leather Clothing

Today's prevalent high-end streetwear aesthetic was predicted by Riccardo Tisci as early as 2009. While contemporaries like Rick Owens, Alexandre Plokhov, and other dark designers had championed a gothic-inspired silhouette for a while, Tisci's rottweiler graphic tees and dark clothes came out at just the right time. Rappers like Kanye West flocked to the designs, and now numerous other brands are trying to piggyback off of that success.
