Designer : rick owens location : palais de tokyo, parisinspiration : called “glitter” this collection references the 70s, a time where frustration rhymed with experience, liberation and transgression…collection : men-duvets where the creator reinterprets the puffa jackets in his own way, destructuring them and draping them around the body.the ultra-long sleeves, the jacket which appears to be inflated and wrapped, creating volumes.the stripes realized by hand, on the canvas bringing a new graphic side. to note : always the staging and the styling of the models, white painting, shaved heads, long hair or transformed, with mousse falling over the face. interview with rick owens : glitter was a period in the 70s where people were using their clothes to express frustration, i think, and the clothes, they were kind of embracing sleaze, i don’t know the french word for sleaze but it’s almost vulgarity and ugliness. i feel there is frustration in the air and one of the ways to express it is through clothes, now i don’t know if i’m really doing that because i feel i’m still too attached to beauty to be that aggressive with clothes, but anyway it was one of my thoughts.draping is a classical motif for clothes, and the grecians did draping, i feel like i’m in the middle of developing a signature, because the last three or four shows have been very much about draping in a more abstract way.i never really do graphics … ever, stripes for me is a surprise and we needed a bit of a surprise. music from the show (only to be used in the context of the show, protected by the right to information.)
