Blessed be the unwavering talents of Rick Owens, father to many who look on for inspiration. Owens‘ latest Fall/Winter 2013 collection was inspired by the architectural shape upon which monuments or structures rest. Lengths and layers mimic the plinth shape, and with the belief that plinths exists to negotiate between a structure and the ground, it is quite clear the message Owens was delivering. Tall black boots with white laces meet Owens‘ layers. Kimonos and tunics with thick stitching resembled Shibari, the ancient Japanese artistic form of rope bondage. There is always a form of exploration within Owens‘ collections, with this as no exception.
