Paris FW – Rick Owens Womenswear AW 2015

Mythological creatures or science fiction characters at Rick Owens for a collection presented in the underground of the Palais de Tokyo.It’s in the underground of the Palais de Tokyo, where raw concrete is mixed with pipes and visible electric wires that Rick Owens chose to present his latest womenswear collection. The American designer creates women that become mythological creatures whilst also looking like science fiction characters. By the way the faces of several models are completely covered up in silver or gold. The volumes come back to the tunics, and appear to be carried by a wave of parachute textures or quilted on the front, or on the contrast behaving like wings with several panels of fabric on the back. Rick Owens also chose to add a romantic side with the sequins that we find particularly on the long tube dresses or on strips at the bottom. The work on the volumes and materials remains very interesting, not only to look at but also to wear.
