Rick Owens Makes Savage Love to the Runway
Layers, funnel necks and gloves with everything – many of Rick Owens‘ staples carry over into his Fall/Winter 09 collection, but there is something decidedly more savage about this look. Be it the shaved hairlines, or the lack of buttons [or closures of any sort] on some of the jackets – there’s a sort of future-tribalism happening here. The wedge boots invoke wading through mountains of moon dust, while the rest of the outfits [and, admittedly, these models' stark features] make me wonder what Gilliam would do with Brazil in 2012.
Whether you’d rock the dropped crotch trousers or not, there is much inspiration for the boys in this collection. Get this look with layering loose, long tops, fitted slacks instead of jeans, boots, gloves and, of course, a killer jacket.
Though there is no way to really knock this off, here are some starter staples to include in your wardrobe for a similar style! You should have these anyhow.
- Boots: Type Z Raman, Type Z Peyton, ALDO Ciriaco, Giorgio Brutini 2019
- Jacket G-Star Drake, Shades of Greige Funnel Neck Jacket, Motobe Faux Leather Jacket , Luvmaison Flap Pocketed Zipup
- Knit tops De Karma Knit Cardigan, Style Impact Muffler, and almost anything here
- Actually, I suggest spending some time on AllSaints’ tailoring section for cheaper alternatives to Rick Owens trousers. No dropped crotches there, however. They have gloves, too!
