Rick Owens A/W 2016

Rick Owens walks into the light with a collection of cocooning coziness and warming hues

Mood board: There was an warming lightness to Rick Owens’ autumn show, his collection not only cocooning the body with organic twists and turns of draped wool and mohair, but also in the winter white, dove grey, flesh pink and sage (named after interior design Madeleine Castaing) hues of his chosen colour palette.

Best in show: Owens’ softest shapes, some of which alluded to a cumulonimbus coziness, as he experimented with the intertwining of different fabric textures to striking effect. His velveteen capes also had a certain cloud nine appeal.

Finishing touches: In some instances fuzzy mohair headpieces, which resembled candy floss, covered the face entirely, serving to further Owens’ hibernation message, and especially when teamed with duvet coats. His oversized leather safety gloves, on the other hand, were the perfect accompaniment to the protective boiler suits that closed the show.
