Rick Owens returned to his trademark dark and layered aesthetic for F/W 10 with silhouettes were long, roomy and full of volume and mixed materials. Grey flannel, crocodile skin, this season’s must-have corduroy and the designer’s signature supple leathers were all pieced into overcoats and blazers, contrasted and “industrialized” with leather footwear, gloves and trims. Drop-crotch pants ended several inches above the ankle and had slightly rounded, uncreased silhouettes. The tweedy, buttonless overcoat was a standout, styled with calf-hugging knit pants and creamy caramel leather boots. Some elongated suit jackets and tailored coats had shoulders hunched upwards; others had a gentle, sloped appearance. The beautiful fabrics, attention to craft and slightly offbeat yet wearable shapes make Owen’s pieces collectibles, transcending trends yet speaking eloquently to the moment.
