Designer : Rick OwensAtmosphere : for his menswear show in June last year, Rick Owens invited us outside, on the esplanade of the Palais deTokyo. This time, no scaffolding, but the pool acts as centre stage, from which smoke escapes, and then, towards the end of the show, immense jets of water spurt and come to soak the models and the whole audience. Collection: A near outlandish atmosphere with clothes that are all draped and round. The dresses have kind of pockets or bags in front, which interweave with the clothes. A play on sleeves for the oversized jackets which fall perfectly. Collage and checked effects in tones of white, grey and green. And to finish, models wrapped up in volumes like baggage built around texture. A very particular way specific to Rick Owens, to describe the world of today, between hope and chaos. To note: The Velcro sandals, the idea of a sleeve which is pulled on one arm or the length of a leg. + The voice of Michèle Lamy (wife and muse of the designer) as the background music. Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information).
