As we took our seats at Palais de Tokyo on Thursday Rick Owens awaited us with yet another out of the ordinary collection. He sent out extremely structured looks with roomy backpacks, 3D designs that appeared to be stuffed with pillows (Could fashion be any more cosy?). Looks that may be unpractical or man repelling (even though the collection spoke of seduction), yet they score high on originality nonetheless. More wearable were a couple of strapless blanket wraps and a selection of woolen overcoats with stud motifs and deep fur-lined pockets. And as experimental headpieces and white face paint added just the right eyebrow raising effect all the fashion press can speak of right now are the brown and yellow plaids that carried the finale. “Arte povera seduction” read the show notes. And even though most of these runway looks don’t necessarily pop up in one’s head when thinking of seduction we can see how those flannel plaid looks might do a great job in empowering a woman’s sex appeal/seductive mood.
