Rick Owens Women’s FW 2014
Not as much of a blowout presentation but aesthetically this is very on point.
Rick Owens FW 14
I’m happy to see such duality in a collection with some more aggressive almost militaristic outfits heading down the runway with much more reserved pieces.
The whole collection sports a gorgeous layering as I generally expect from Rick but the proportions are so on point this season. I especially like the massive one piece sleeveless jumpsuits although I think the leather one might be a little tough to pull off.
As always I quite like the use of white in the collection yet the striped shorts leave a bit to be desired. I feel like I’m opposed to that kind of thing as it will merely perpetuate the awful street goth fad.
Of course it’s nice to see the return of do rags to the Men’s collection.
The ‘space nun’ look as I’ve always mentally referred to it as is something Rick does perfectly. A very welcome addition to the collection and gorgeous styling on the runway.
I’m excited to see what else Paris holds this week

Great collection… as always. I liked this more than the Men’s spring summer shown earlier this year. It seems a little more complex but still very comparable to the earlier men’s offering. I’ve probably watched the video for the presentation about five times and I’m absolutely in love with it. The strength, the energy, and the movement of the performance all showcased the collection in such a perfect light.
Of course there has a been a huge backlash due to Rick’s choice in models. Depending on what you read or who you talk to there are a ton of different opinions regarding the models body type and how they looked in the clothing. I wont be discussing that… I don’t believe that was the motivation behind the choices that were made. The strength and confidence these women exuded was perfect and that’s all that needs to be said.

DRKSHDW Ephemere New York Store
Rick Owens will be opening two DRKSHDW pop up shops in the near future.
The first location runs from July 16th to October 26th and will be located in New York City at 70-72 Wooster Street, SoHo.
The other store will be located in London at 30A Redchurch Street in Shoreditch and will run from September 4th to October 13th.
These temporary stores will bring more attention to the full line of Drkshdw goods. Often the brand takes a back seat to Rick Owens mainline but this will showcase the clothing in it’s own right.
