PFW SS15: Rick Owens

Widely known for the ambiguous mysticism that is expressed through his designs, Rick Owens‘ SS15 at PFW played on the balance between purity and sensuality from the one side; asymmetry and geometry from the other one. This collection talked moods and fabrics citing modernity with a sense of being untouched.

Developing the same themes of his menswear show in June, models walked like nymphs in tulle dresses with painted faces and bodies. The collection utilised earth tones mainly comprised of brown, tan, khaki, warm gray but also some totally black pieces. A departure from the assertive and combative steppers of the SS14 and the futuristic primitivism of the AW14, this collection presented ethereal otherworldly entities conquering the catwalk. The show featured plethora of tulle, sheer fabrics, smocks, deconstructed hems, see-through midis, satin in bronze and black hues, asymmetrical evening dresses, raw-edged layers and architectural baggy garments in print, all of them were teamed with ultra-high clog platforms.

Unceasingly infused with romantic vibes and some hints of modernisation, this show offered ethereal designs through transparent silhouettes playing with lightness and lyricism.
