The world becomes dramatically devastated due to climate changes, but Rick Owens stands in defence, letting his men out this season. “I’m thinking about that a lot, thinking about the challenges that the world is facing, and how people deal with changes,” he shared backstage. “You can put up a defensive facade – which is great, and I’ve done that, we all do that, and that can be totally fine. But this season, I thought I wanted to do something more gentle.” Comparing to autumn-winter 2016 season, which was all about heavy layers, Rick’s spring collection is all about revealing the inner side. It’s definitely gentler in form, with oversized trousers and draped tops. The models look like soldiers, but not entirely fighting types – rather like the peace-keepers, in their fluidic robes and body-adapting silhouettes. Empowering pieces for a tough world we live in.
