Rick Owens Spring 2013 Runway Review

Given his love for all things goth, this season's Rick Owens collection looks as though it was kissed by an angel. Fairytale-like billowing proportions done in soft neutrals opened the show, before progressing into more sci-fi territory with colorblocking, sharp cuts, and oversized shoulders. Of course it wouldn't be an Owens collection without leather and black and so the show also included high-shine black structured separates and dresses (including some fashioned out of croc).

It's exciting to see Owens go in a slightly more romantic direction (even though women looking for silhouettes to flatter their body will, for the most part, need to look elsewhere) while maintaining his envelope-pushing aesthetic.
