Bless up from your feet to your ed top
We go again
With recent events the fashion world has had to take some licenses to deliver us some work. I sincerely appreciate that and would like to get going by talking about Rick Owens
Rick Owens newest collection Pfor SS21 and I had the inclination to agree with some points.
What @hausofdarkwah was talking about was the interplay of Femininity from masculinity an how explorative some of Ricks earlier silhouette were, as well as unabashedly themselves and the possible muzzle that could have been put on the collection. The term Phlegethon being such a ferocious one meaning one of the Infernal rivers of the underworld you would ask yourself is this the story these clothes are telling and does this truly represent Rick?
As Ayo was saying this collection seems more commercial and buyable. The thing is though as Michael on the panel also said is that their is so much Rick on the market way past the asking and this can be seen as tame especially when faced with the Previous collections they almost seem diametrically opposed to one another the spirit of and infernal fire isn’t flowing like the underworld cult phenomenon Rick Owens usually would.
That being said the space and time that we are in can only have me ask what the possibilities would have been with full recourses would the colours rage in a conniption of Rick Flavour and styling Would the sets be in the pantheon of Rick Owens sets considering how the last collections flourished. I for one will accept this Rick as it is and on a fair setting agree and accept that there are acts of God at play
