CAVEMAN FUTURSIM
Paris: Rick Owens’ menswear often goes in one of two directions, either ascetic monk or apocalyptic nomad. For F/W 13 it was the latter, with modern versions of the arctic costumes worn north of the wall on HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones, complete with lace-up snow boots, fuzzy gloves, and “wildling” hairstyles. Built for a harsh environment, the collection centered on coats worn oversized, wrapped, puffed and hooded in shades of white, cream and slate grey, each crafted from padded nylon, wool or furs. Back-to-basics blanket construction dominated, with self-belts, signature funnel necks and minimal hardware advancing Owens’ unique brand of caveman futurism for yet another season.—Nina Stotler
