The Softer Side of Spring

Rick Owens Spring Summer 10 Womens

As you have probably noticed, we’ve been skipping over most of the Spring runway shows.  Spring lines are always full of hideous pastels that I find visually offensive, but without fail, our dear Mister Owens has come through for us.  Without abandoning his angular cuts and exaggerated collars, he has incorporated softer tones into his monochromatic palette and lightened his fabrics and flows.

  1. This shows that designers don’t have to resort to those horrid bright colors in order to make something truly beautiful. I don’t know why designers think people need/want to wear all kinds of shocking colors just because the weather gets warm.

  2. It upsets me when they show the Spring lines right when Fall starts, I feel rushed.

    also 4th down looks like toilet tissue got stuck to their skirts. But the boots are neat.

  3. This collection was nice, but Gareth Pugh’s Spring collection was incredible IMHO for the monochrome look.

  4. rick owens has indeed softened it up for spring but in a good way, i think. i do like these runway looks you’ve posted.
    over all, i wasn’t impressed w/ the FW shows, especially what we’re seeing from Paris….fall was much stronger. i guess we blame the recession…?
