After the disappointment of Balenciaga, Nina Ricci and Balmain, I'm delighted to find myself in love with the Rick Owens fall collection! The subtle palette of blacks, greys, whites and milky-blues removes unneccesary distraction, drawing the eye to the impeccable tailoring and texture of the pieces. It's so hard to explain what it is that Rick Owens does, but it's certain that he has a distinctive vision and aesthetic that transcends trends, especially the weird '80s vibe going on in so many collections (I'm sick of seeing padded/poofed/oversized/structured shoulders). The last photo is especially impactful as it seems to make a statement about his direction after this. As long as he stays true to himself, while being innovative, I'm happy. Well, maybe after getting one of his gorgeous leather jackets for myself.
