Collection autumn/winter 2017
If ‘Glitter’, the collection’s title, was a reference to Owens signature grunge glamour aesthetic, then this time that aspect was toned down. Enveloping models in padded down coats and jackets, deconstructed and layered with wool and canvas across an earthy range of colours like khaki, camel, grey, black, white and rose petal, Rick Owens' AW17 collection gave off a warmer, cosier vibe than usual. Reminiscent of royal ceremonies, these silhouettes – with volume added by zips, layers and wraparound shapes – were bulky rather than slinky, soft rather than edgy. The deconstructed sweaters and T-shirts donned as headgear rounded out a strange and strangely comforting collection.
