PWF SS18: Rick Owens

WEIRD and wonderful, that’s what we think when someone mentions Rick Owens, and that’s what we got from him for his SS18 collection. Avant–garde as ever, the show was a feast of art to the eyes, ready to awe the audience.

As models strutted, carefully, down the steps of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, they sported origami–like dresses of white, black , grey and green, in platform sandals that seemed to be strapped heavily round their feet. Extravagant and massive experimental garments towered over the bodies of the delicate models who wore them, looking out-of-this-world with materials wrapped and tangled around un–proportionate moulded garments which also gave a protruding belly – hinting at fertility, making it all very conceptual. This was all alongside tailored jackets, soft jersey skirts and arm and leg warmers in a mustard tone.

Models had very natural make up, intentionally so as to not draw attention away from the sculptured garments.
