The spotlight was on the hardcore band "Winny Puhh" during the show that introduced us to Rick Owens Spring/Summer Menswear collection for 2014, During Paris Fashion Week. The american fashion designer described this collection as his "revenge", in the sense that he always felt excluded in his life. That sentiment was clearly seen in this presentation, as there was a lot of disorder and chaos with an aggressive sound and spinning musicians hanging in the air.
The collection, although said to be themed "Vicious", was in fact not harmful at all. The clothes were athletic and sporty, featuring a very wearable, street look style. Although very dark, the pieces had an easy, cheerful element to it. In fact, we might say the designer had the last laugh after this rather ironic, contrasting show.
Rick Owen paints a world of his own and usually portrays a dark exterior with his designs, but that is also the reason why he creates controversy. Is unique visual mind is what makes him successful among the fashion world and no one can really copy or imitate his brilliance.
