As in his earlier collections Rick Owens used a lot of black and white. Only this time most of the designs were a combination of the two instead of being all white or black. Therefore the collection seemed a bit more cheerful. The clothes were characterized by asymmetry and crazy shapes. Models wore shorts combined with long jackets and gilets. A few jackets had large bumps at the back that looked like enormous stitched-on backpacks. Some jumpsuits had legs so long the models were walking on the fabric. As seen before with Owens the funny suede saggy boots were back. Strange details were added on many of the designs. One was a long piece of fabric that slipped between the legs of the models as they walked the runway. Another was a black pom pom-looking item attached on the waists of some models. Although these details didn’t make a lot of sense, they proved Owens’ skill in experimenting with different shapes. (Tess van Daelen)
