Rick Owens showed his SS19 womenswear collection at the Palais De Tokyo in Paris yesterday. The same location is used by Owens every season, usually with some elaborate staging erected for the show.
For his SS19 “BABEL,” the runway encircled a wooden Burning Man-esque structure that caught alight halfway through. The show notes spoke About witches, spells and hexes, obviously a nod to his long time muse and partner Michelle Lamy. The emotions that the collection tapped into were listed as “HOPE, DREAD, SERENITY, NIHILISM”.
