RICK OWENS SS2015
It looks like be brought back the guitar straps inside jackets which was my favorite feature ever, but made them a foot thick. Why
Awesome, totally needed some diapers for an alien
Meanwhile, stores will continue to stock leather jackets and basics
I don't like the stitched work, the color blocking, the satiny nylon fabrics, or the peacoats. Looks like Raf does Jil does Rick Owens in a couple spots
The long MA-1s and tunics look interesting, though.
Possibly new rickdidas?
Yeah, like lots of Rick shows, I had to suppress my jerking knee enough to appreciate his designs, but overall I enjoyed the collection for the same reasons I usually enjoy Rick collections-- the zany ways he reduces the human body to simple geometric shapes. The 'diapers', the elongated tanks with the rectangles dangling off of them, were this season's attempt to impose modernist controls on human bodies (holy shit that sounded pretentious, but isn't that what he's doing??). Dude's clearly a fan of more than just activewear and black and black activewear, which was obvious in this season's whiffs of expressionist woodcuts and 60's minimalism.
And yeah, looking forward to stores carrying the exact same leathers and tees and pod shorts they carry every darn season
His runway shows are totally unrelated to what's available lately, and it's not even just basics. This spring season's show was all diapers and weird mesh tanks, but then in stores there were loads of great cardigans and knits along with the normal sweatpants, leathers and tees.
this is sick as fuck if you just accept it as a runway show
I feel like Rick using color is just a more subtle version of trolling
Colors are great, super wide carrying straps are great, liking this.
most interesting thing from rick in a little while. would love to see a hardcore Rick guy on the street in a blush bomber.
I'm still at this stage.
And yes, meanwhile, everyone will still be wearing Rick in the same, heavy, humorless way they always have.
I love the colours but don't really get the designs.
I love the color blocking and the sleeveless long shirts with the wide, angular shoulders. Both those would look great under a jacket, etc. Like a lot of Rick stuff, it looks a bit insane on the runway or the hanger, but if you put it on you like it a lot more.
It seems like, since Plinth, he's been adding more feminine details into his designs and fabrics. I like this angle as it sometimes makes the pieces even more severe in contrast, or can soften them a bit, depending...ultimately, it just adds another dimension which I think works really well on top of the architectural designs he employs.
I also love what he is doing with the denim and canvas-type materials in off-white. I would love to see him carry that over to make replicas of all his leather pieces (stooges, bauhaus, etc.). Those would look incredible as lighter jackets or layering pieces.
Anyway - love the colors, especially that great clayish-red brown he's been using, I think he calls is 'raisin' or something. It makes such a cool compliment to all the black and gray.
