Rick Owens Men’s RTW Spring 2011

“Next time I’ll include earplugs with the invite,” said Rick Owens of his blistering techno soundtrack, which jolted his audience out of their seats. The hard-edged clothes had a similar impact. Owens mined a “monastic couture” theme, sending out streamlined outerwear in jet black, habit brown and pristine white over gargantuan footwear. The designer riffed on familiar leitmotifs, including drop-crotch shorts, asymmetric tank tops and tubular, hunch-sleeve jackets. A sleeveless leather jacket-hoodie hybrid was a standout piece. “I wanted severe clothes made from beautiful fabrics,” Owens said. Message heard, loud and clear.
