SYMBOLS AND RITUALS
Paris: Rick Owens has been in a devout frame of mind lately, a perspective he carried through this week from last spring with a procession of monastic tunics, robes and clogs. The clogs were a new addition and Owens’ lightened things up with sleeveless wrapped jersey tops and transparent organza blazers, while kimono vests and three-quarter length jackets were tweaked with a crisply clinical silhouette. The collection also featured geometric patchwork, which in Owens’ hands became a series of abstract symbols and infused a sense of movement into stiff leather pieces. At the conclusion of the presentation, S/S 13’s spiritual vibe was fractured with the surprise introduction of modern anoraks and bomber jackets, their almost garish triangle repeats an unwelcome contrast to Owens’ otherwise seamless work. — Nina Stotler
