Rick Owens - Menswear Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 Show in Paris

Rick Owens abandons the hard-surfaced space at Bercy in favour of the historic Palais de Chaillot on the Place du Trocadéro in Paris, overlooking the Eiffel Tower. The music and the American designer’s trademark looks contradict and yet finally match the setting. Sporting trainer-boots with their heads covered by warrior foulards, models emerge in oversized t-shirts that turn-into thick leather dresses, on top of Bermudas, worn over trousers. Layers increase, creating multiple different styles. Bermuda jumpsuits appear with circular zips on the back, coats in double-faced cashmere become all-enveloping whilst images of revolvers emerge on knitwear. Rick Owens explores and questions authority (of the police and that which we impose on ourselves), translating this idea in his own way, through a timeless collection. And the American rap star ASAP Rocky, seated on the front row, totally approves this latest Rick Owens collection…Music from the show
