Eye on the Runway: Rick Owens Fall/Winter 2013 Men’s

Pin It

Rick Owens isn’t really one to look at if you’re wanting variety, although the Paris-by-way-of-California enfant terrible would probably argue the opposite. His show today was essentially a remix of his greatest hits. Belted wrap coats, dramatically high collars, elongated tanks, asymmetric leather jackets and moon boots rounded out the lineup, but there were two standouts to take note of: a skinnier leg and the use of fur.

Let’s start with the former. On a majority of the models, Owens showed a thin denim, ribbed on the interior calf with motorcycle-esque padding. It’s nice to see a more commercial pant from Owens as most men have a hard time pulling off the ultra-drop-crotch iterations we’re used to seeing, although there were plenty of examples of those, too.

Owens also used fur sparingly — it seems to be ubiquitous this men’s season — most successfully on a simple overcoat. Nothing, and really, we mean nothing, is more indulgent than a Rick Owens sable.
