Rick Owens aw10 show was today at 13.00 hrs in the beautiful building of Ecole Nationale de Beaux Arts.
The ambience started out quite light and gradually became darker - moving to the changing pace of a remixed “Through The Looking Glass” by Mott The Hoople ( according the my iphone’s Shazam that finally came to perfect use ).
The collection was heavy and very clean cut - almost stiff but still with a clear signature.
Medieval influences was seen in blacksmith like aprons and heavy arm length “gloves”.
The collection was definately a change - a change that could be seen as a commercial move by some, because of the cleaner lines, but I actually felt the opposite as it in many was was daring when you think of the “ regular” Rick Owens signature look that is mostly more grungy and layered.
A nice change I believe... like taking a deep breath and straightening the back for a moment.

On a paprazzi note: Kanye West and Amber Rose was spotted front row hiding behind their shades...
