Paris Fashion Week: Rick Owens AW13
The signature Rick Owens look of asymetrical cuts, layering of monochrome oversized pieces and tailored leather outerwear have been widely copied and form part of the fashion vocabulary. It is increasingly difficult for the designer to maintain a unique point view in a sea of imitators. For AW13 the designer charted into new territories with a serene and fragile collection that referenced japanese knotting and kimono silhouettes. Stand out looks include Owen’s cleverly adapted kimono shapes, which were both wearable and show stopping. The outerwear in black pony skin and suede with the knotting details were sublime and luxurious. There’s no doubt Rick Owen’s dedicated following will appreciate the labels new direction. #Rick Owens #ParisFashionWeek
