The men’s FW15 ‘SPHINX’ collection is about compression.
It’s about pressure built-up in silent vessels filled with energy.
Inspired by a forgotten black and white french movie set in a military submarine, the mood is about the strain of preserving reason under extreme pressure.
After an outlandish Menswear collection, Rick Owens has displayed a less sexual but in no means less extraordinary collection for Womenswear FW15.
Volume and proportion was exaggerated and dramatized by draping fabrics and oversized tunics.
The models’ faces have been saturated with flecks of gold and silver foil, creating a futuristic mask.
So, the concept for this season is theatrical but wearable.
