RICK OWEN’S – Fall RTW ’11
March 16, 2011 § Leave a comment
Pairing 40-60’s retro with grunge leather and thigh high boots will most likely invent a noxious combination of cyclical vintage and entrenched streetwear. Rick Owens, however, has composed an irreproachable fusion of classical chic with his characteristic grunge rudiments, resulting in arguably his best line yet. Demure capes and snoods adapted from the late Charles James celebrated the earliest incentives of Owens’ couture, while his inveterate murky hues subdued the entire collection. Angelic puffers juxtaposed leather-paneled jackets – Owens’ signature homage to his Los Angeles roots. Meanwhile, chaste head coverings and dropped waistlines transposed his idiosyncratic sensual elements into a body conscious combination of restraint and striking elongation. Rick Owens’ devotees are eager to seize his latest innovations, as well as new enthusiasts who witnessed an increase in versatility within his latest creations.
