Spring/Summer 2015: Rick Owens

The king of edgy minimalism, Rick Owens’s garments have evoked thoughts of prison more than once, but hey, it works. The designer’s Parisian runway show was more of the same, which had critics and fans alike collectively, though silently, jumping for joy. Hippie chicks won’t find much to love in this drab color-coated collection, but serious style lovers will flock to the minimalist neutral color palette for its sheer versatility. We can totally picture Kim K. and baby North rocking Mommy & Me outfits comprised of Rick Owens separates, with the approval of Kanye of course.

Surprisingly soft pastels, sheer of course, were also a presence on Rick Owens’ runway, leaving the ultra feminine fashionistas of the flock wiping their foreheads and sighing a collective “Whew!”. The glamour girls are often forced to shun the majoirty of the designers’ collections for lack of embellishment or sexy silhouette.

One particular Avante Garde garment adorned in the coolest of copper shades must have elicited at least one gasp in the audience. A black version made just as big of an impact. Another common trend on the runway was an abudnace of assymetrical hemlines, creating an industrial fairy vibe, if you can imagine. Aside from that, flowy dresses with blended geometric prints and details like mesh are ideal for the gal who loves to experiment with her wardrobe. Style chameleons are sure to snatch up at least one of these hot pieces. When Kanye and Kim K. are among you biggest fans, you know plenty of gals will be are sure to follow. Adding luxe accessories is the glamour girl’s best bet for making Rick Owens pieces appropriate for fun nights on the town. Otherwise, our verdict is that these clothes are best left to the warehouse. Grungy minimalism just isn’t our style, but we’re sure the Willow Smiths and Lordes of the world may be up to task.
