For the SS19 collection, Chris imagined a scene of figures existing in his dystopian universe irreverently melding Catholic iconography, goth paganism, and sexuality.

Melanie Gaydos, the menacing but virtuous nun, proudly displays her “chastity” in an revealing rosy colored latex nun habit framing her face with a ring of ball chain along with matching latex panties (designed in collaboration with Vex Clothing). She lovingly clutches an oversized rhodium plated brass cross hanging from her neck, her fingers adorned with an assortment of sterling silver rings including a hinged style in Chris’ new custom barbed wire shape.
