Paris menswear fashion week: Rick Owens

The American designer unveiled a headline-grabbing Fall/Winter 2015 menswear collection featuring some skin-flashing knits and a plethora of peacoats. 

Owens' latest collection was apparently inspired by a black and white movie set in a military submarine, and the focus on the peacoat and the cable knit sweater was clear. Soundtracked by looping trap music by Austin, Texas act Bames, peacoats cut in different barrel, fitted and flared shapes appeared in different finishes (from a rusting hull, to a shining fresh paint) and were worn with layers of shorts and leggings. 

They were accompanied by the designer's sport-goth (well, he was here first) sneakers and sneakerboots and silk and cashmere knit sweaters. Those knits then morphed into woven jumpsuits, and here's where it all got typically weird. The turtleneck holes on the tops reappeared on crotches, allowing the audience the full spectacle of the models' manhoods. 

The smock dresses were similarly revealing with a cleaving away at the silhouette also showing off some bare torsos. For the rest, things were typically acetic and there was little decoration save for some glittery strips hanging from one look, and some Suprematist-inspired motifs.
