Thursday March 4, 2010 – Palais de Chaillot
Rick Owens is one of the few designer’s whose work is easily recognizable. His unique esthetic has been reinterpreted in many young designer’s collections but none ever come close to the original. For his Fall 2010 collection, Rick presented an army of tribal nuns, “an army in a disciplined way” said the designer backstage. The designer took organic elements and draped it around the woman’s body. We imagine pre-historic lands around these tribal nuns but can just as easily imagine them in a futuristic jungle.
Albeit intended for winter, arms were exposed and hands were covered by lambskin gloves with fur trims. A circular brown rigid belt looked like a piece of wood while a similar black belt resembled sculptured lava. Bicolor tights were paired with the brand’s signature boots, which were declined in open toe leather or crocodile. A knit sweater was incorporated into a metallic asymmetrical jacket while skirts were given texture through layering. Tops were pleated while ‘stitched geometric armor’ was added to reinforce the tribal inspiration. Handsome leather jackets were so desirable that we could overhear the models asking to keep them. Luigi Murenu created a sculptural hairstyle, with hair being pulled back, making it seem like a constant wind was blowing it back. Aaron de Mey’s striking dark eye patches makeup made the models appear as if they were part of a fashionable tribe, one we would love to join.
