Rick Owens kept dick off the runway this time. For one, it's womenswear and for another, a true artist would never do the same thing twice. When you're an avant garde designer like Rick Owens, you have to look for clues for understanding the thought process. It appears there is a Mayan influence because of the decorative shapes on the clothing. They also seem ceremonial, especially in the draping. The gilded faces in gold or silver are more than just dramatic elements but suggest importance. The most shocking aspect of the collection, believe it or not, was Owens' use of sequins! Why is that so shocking? As a minimalist, it's a big deal. Also, the last grouping on the runway seemed to be very clean and polished.
