Rick Owens | Cyclops


Rick Owens latest runway show was bizarre! It was no doubt, unique. Rick Owens is known for his rebellious self in the fashion world but this just crosses it. His show featured models wearing models. We should have seen something coming after he decided to have his male models whip out their penises at his menswear show earlier in the year.


From Rick Owens view the show had a bigger meaning than what everyone was thinking, all about sisterhood. Women supporting and nurturing one another. where as the menswear talked about ego.
“In the Spring men’s collection which shares the same name (Cyclops), that focussed vision was propulsive and aggressive. When applied to women’s, I see that focussed vision being more about nourishment, sisterhood/motherhood and regeneration,” explained Owens. 
I have always thought Owens is creative, he makes fashion headlines with most of the things he does. Although a lot of times the shows mean more than what meets the eye.
I believe he is not just a designer but an artist. He conveys different messages through his shows.

“Women raising women, women becoming women, and women supporting women – a world of women I know little about and can only attempt to amuse in my own small way…Straps can be about restraint but here they are all about support and cradling. Straps here become loving ribbons.”
Rick Owens is one of favourite designers, and it isn't that shocking to me that this has been done, as previously mentioned he creates art. Fashion with a deeper meaning, it's not always just about clothes and style but personality and respect.
