Beyoncé brings her new album Lemonade’s political and personal messages of feminine empowerment and self-acceptance to life in her Formation world tour kicking off in Miami, Florida on April 27.
Following the celebrated leather warrior jacket Dsquared2 created for Beyoncé’s electrifying Super Bowl performance earlier this year, the opening look for the Formation World Tour embodies Dsquared2’s signature design and Beyoncé’s enigmatic new style.
Dsquared2 also designed the complimentary looks for her 20 female dancers.
“We are crazy about Beyoncé, and working with her to create this opening look for the Formation tour is such a huge thrill and honor. The look tells a story, drawing from the motifs of our recent women’s runway collection while, at the same time, visualizing the powerful themes in her new music.
It’s really exciting to see it come to life on stage - especially since she opens the show in full Dsquared2,” said Dan and Dean Caten.
Beyoncé wears an elaborate and customized Victorian style outfit taking inspiration from the last FW16 Dsquared2 collection. It comprised by a black crystal embroidered bustier with velvet, puff shouldered embroidered sleeves, broad brim hat, and lace embellished leather gloves.
A tattoo lace bodysuit creates an embroidery effect on the skin while a crystal mesh fishnet bodysuit brings light to the look. Ruffled and jeweled black ankle boots finish off the look.
Beyonce’ s dancers complement her in a Victorian style black lace bodysuit with leather and lace gloves, a broad brim hat, and ruffled capelet with a bow at the neck.
The Formation World Tour will visit 22 cities in North America and 16 cities in Europe and the UK until August 2016.
