Blasphemous Sportswear Sweaters

This Givenchy sweater was created by Ricardo Tisci and features a blurry image of The Virgin Mary. The sweater is an inventive juxtaposition of streetwear and religion. The edgy sweater features a black satin design across the front, black jersey sleeves and appliqued star patterns.

Look closely and you’ll see a fragmented, mysterious image of a woman who is slightly out of focus. Designer Ricardo Tisci is known for his controversial designs for the luxury French label. While this sweater might not go over well when attending mass, it will surely pick you up some street cred with your buddies.

This is just one example of the popularity of religious iconography being used in popular fashions, in an ironic and subversive way.
