Patrik Rzepski’s Slasher-Inspired Spring Collection Is Deadly Cool

We were expecting some serious blood and gore when Patrik Rzepski named Argento's classic horror film Suspiria as the inspiration for his spring collection. Slashed leotards and witch-wear? Razor-wire? Prevalent iris prints? Rzepski, fortunately, is better at spinning surrealist slasher inspiration into sartorial gold; The collection's dramatic pieces skew romantic, with tiered semi-ruffled panels, loose mesh pants, and dresses that off-duty witches might consider wearing to a gallery opening. The only overtly scary piece in the bunch is a sleeveless top with a cascade of chains down the front—but pair those with sheer black stockings and a sweet skirt and you've got the makings of your very own art-house thriller.
