Despite the baseless claims, Tisci has publicly refuted the rumours by sharing a picture of the same, asserting that it is a luxury art piece.
How the rumours sprawled

The image raised suspicion due to the faintly visible presence of a tray in the background, leading speculators to make unfounded allegations of drug abuse against those present. Tisci promptly removed the post after the rumors began to gain traction.
