Rick Owens fashion show: the marriage of black and genderless
The famous American designer Rick Owens presented his latest men’s fall-winter 2023-2024 collection within the walls of the Palais de Tokyo. In the spotlight: black, his favorite color, a genderless spirit and giant down jackets.
This time, it’s not on the emblematic terrace of the Palais de Tokyo but inside, in a sunlit room, that Rick Owens unveiled his latest winter creations. On a rock music, the first models have paraded on metal structures. The first to open the ball was none other than Tyrone Dylan, muse of the designer, with a total black look. Layering was the order of the day in this show, with the first look being shorts covering faux leather pants, accompanied by wedge boots with heels and a half cape-half crop top.
The iconic designer’s collections form a tasty mix between present and future, but also genres, seasons and materials. Among his new creations, we can find long oversized coats, suits whose cut is perfectly controlled and coats and jackets with destructured shoulders, almost geometric. We could also discover XXL bombers as well as long coats in moumoute, sherpa style.
The designer is in a rather genderless and inclusive trend, offering dresses and skirts for men with a destroy look, with a little punk side. Some past trends are revived in this new collection, with pants and skirts in ripped or washed denim. Rick Owens is also betting on the return of low-rise pants for men.
Strong pieces of this fashion show, down jackets with architectural and enveloping volumes, look like some kind of inflatable structures, in which the models can hardly move. But we also find, and without surprise, the emblematic boots of the House – Grilled Platforms – that everyone knows, revisited version waders or après-ski. In fact, all the models wore these wonders, with which they had some difficulty walking on the metal sheets.
In black and … black. Obviously, who says new collection Rick Owens says black. But the dark shades were punctuated with purple, khaki and brown.
Dark designer with green commitments
The designer with long hair and body covered with tattoo, transcribes his punk-grunge look in these collections. Very respectful of the environment and animals, he uses a lot of eco-friendly materials to make his clothes. The skirts and jackets are made of recycled denim, the calf leather gloves come from an Italian family factory. The fabric of the pants is woven from organic cotton fibers. On the accessories side, the solid aluminum sleeves and chokers are produced in the suburbs of Florence.
