This is not, in fact, a Norwegian black metal concert, but the runway today in Paris for Rick Owens’s new menswear collection. Fashion! So fickle! So fun! So TERRIFYING AHHH GET THIS MONSTER AWAY FROM ME!
Welcome to our new world of po-mo-po-mo ouroboros, in which 2015 has warped into some kind of psychedelic sick joke: Donald Trump is dominating the headlines, Chipotle gives you e.coli, The Walking Dead still hasn’t killed off Carl (or, in Rick parlance, COORAL). Thankfully, there has been at least one constant in…
Is it lesbian sex-positive? Commentary on the fact that you can’t actually walk in those invisible-heel shoes? A Lee McQueen dis? A Leigh Bowery rip? Who knows but this is the dude who had guys walking the runway with exposed dicks at his last Menswear show, so like, just accept that it’s art, okay.
In an interesting collaboration that will thrill the small center of a Venn diagram charting Bronies and fashion enthusiasts, several big name designers—including Rick Owens, Versace, and Balmain—have made custom My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic plush toys that they’re auctioning off for charity.
"I thought it was the most simple, primal gesture—and you know I love a simply tiny, little gesture that packs the wallop," designer Rick Owens said regarding the three peek-a-boo dicks that flapped down the runway yesterday during his fall 2015 menswear show.
Rick Owens' menswear show today in Paris was a mishmash of raw edges, high necklines, earth tones, and dicks. Donald Ducking Is Officially In. This post is NSFW.
Sweatshirts are the hot trend for fall, you know, the time of year when you’ll probably be wearing sweatshirts anyway, because the air is crisp and long-sleeves are helpful. I, as a fashionable lazy person, am thrilled about this news. Et tu?
Yesterday, as part of Paris Fashion Week, edgy fashion darling Rick Owens sent "real" women down the runway alongside professional models. It's a reassuring sight we've seen before — and one that we'll undoubtedly see again in many iterations (for example, DKNY did it earlier this month at New York Fashion Week, to…
When fashion does "subversive," it tends to faux-subvert industry norms within a very unoriginal arena, while mostly upholding industry (very thin, mostly white) norms. "Subversive" fashion is ugly clothing and ugly makeup on very thin, mostly white models; "subversive" fashion is making some kind of bizarre gender…
If you're going to another planet where you plant to do a lot of entertaining and go to the occasional punk show, and have a big clothing budget, may we suggest Rick Owens' Spring/Summer RTW collection?
- "Sources" are saying that Kimora Lee Simmons didn't leave Baby Phat, the fashion line she founded — she was fired. Allegedly, she was kicked out for being too spendthrift. For example: "It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her."
- Did L.A. boutique Maxfield drop Victoria Beckham's dVb in favor of Holmes & Yang? Posh's people say Maxfield hasn't ordered the line for three seasons, and the decision had nothing to do with Katie Holmes, who is Posh's friend. [P6]
Paris Fashion Week is underway, and the Frenchies, we fear, think the end is near. (Are things really that bad with Sarko et Bruni?) Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe and Viktor & Rolf all presented variations on a futuristic post-apocalyptic warrior: Owens riffed on his signature layering to create a…
