Men’s – Cyclops. Rick Owens SS16

_RIC0119

Cyclops” was the keyword of yesterday’s Rick Owens show. The mythological creature with one eye is a symbol of men aggression and devastation – and precisely this was presented through severely curled hairstyles of the models and tattered tunics. The maxi tank-tops had something chaotic about them, too. A kind of violence was visible in the clothes, that’s sure. Leather and other various textiles were all sewn together, giving an arty, very impulsive and emotional expression. However, the whole vision of Owens’ new collection was disturbed by Jera, a model-muse of the designer. Suddenly, during the show, the German model took out a banner that said “PLEASE KILL ANGELA MERKEL…NOT“. The unplanned stunt was said to be totally out of Owens’ hands, with the designer being furious and stressing in an interview backstage, “I don’t know because it was not my idea. He pulled it out and I punched him when he came off stage.” Whatever this message meant to be, this what Jera did was disrespectful for the whole project Rick Owens and his team worked on.
