Rick Owens Spring Summer 2015 Interview

Rick Owens Men’s Spring Summer 2015

Leave it to Rick to always surprise… 
This collection was nothing like I was expecting and honestly by this point I feel like I should expect that from Rick. As a proponent for drop crotch pants even I’m intrigued by what appears to be some kind of tied sarong shorts but it’s hard to tell with the way this show is style. Many garments are worn in such unnatural ways tied and draped over the bodies of the models.

The whole show has a very obvious tribal feel to it with the styling and of course the body paint. Who could forget the body paint… a very bold choice. 

An interesting addition to the collection was the embroidered prints. These were based on a series of drawings Rick Owens team member Benoit had drawn for Rick and Michelle in previous years.

As well in an interview regarding the collection Rick Owens attributed some of the inspiration to ‘the ballet ‘Afternoon of a Faun’ 

"I was thinking about the ballet Afternoon of a Faun, choreographed by Nijinsky. It basically all culminates with this faun masturbating on a nymph’s scarf, so everybody in the audience, with all their jewels, are just waiting for this guy to hump the scarf. I love that!" – Rick Owens.

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

G
reat 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.
