A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Some designers just make clothes for the sake of it and others are driven by otherworldly and primal urges. Rick Owens could be the ringleader of the latter, and his spring 'Faun' collection was one of the pinnacle moments of an intimate dialogue with his fellow earthlings told through clothes. In it he divulged the true story of a wayward model embraced into his family fold, and Owens' addition of the naive spirit drawings of that artistic soul as tapestries across the collection. One spoke of Les Ballets Russes and the other of the mischievous behaviour of a faun tangled in lust with a stolen nymph's scarf. It explained the long sashes that looped around Owens' shorts and trailed off a multitude of colour-blocked tunic tops in strips of flyaway nylon. And yes, I said the word 'colour', at Rick Owens. Sky blue, apricot, deep russet and bright white all factored into those sleeveless tops and a bevy of bombers harnessed with asymmetric cages, worn atop skorts and Owens' latest Adidas creation - a silvered leather moon boot bouncing on a blade-shaped sole.Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans
