Rick Owens specializes in clothes for the gothic nomad and this season was no exception; all manner of capes, hoods, furs and of course leathers were all on display. Add in the layered mix of textures and those nearly thigh high wedge boots and you have the makings of one seriously fashionable vagabond, but this was far from a one note collection. Owens offered up something slinky, by way of sleek leather skirts and a series of form fitting black dresses toughened up with those aforementioned boots. On the sportswear front, Owens delivered his own take on the ubiquitous puffer jacket with a strong shouldered and dramatic shape that puts other coats to shame. All in all this was a strong showing, from one of fashion’s true masters.
