    | Rick Owens brought his game and then some to Paris Fashion Week. The show stopping futuristic Spring/Summer 2018 collection.


    Rick Owens is the master of sculptural silhouettes, avant garde styling and impeccable origami tailoring, and today's S/S 18 womenswear presentation at Palais de Tokyo in Paris was no exception.

    This breathtaking show was, in my opinion, some of Owens' best work even by his own high standards for this new evolution in the brand's 'Dirt' show series, which, like June's menswear show, is inspired by:

    “Grappling with the elements and wanting to subdue them. It makes me think of death in a positive way. It’s humbling, that kind of eternal thing. Anything I took seriously isn’t going to matter in 200 years.”

    There is a strong idea of discord then, between the natural and the supernatural. On one hand, the colours were muted and earthy, with a palette of black and white injected with forest green, soft grey and mustard yellow. On the other, the shapes-as expected- were otherworldly. The SS18 Rick Owens girl is futuristic and alien, and yet still down to earth. Her look is never a costume, always a carefully calculated reflection of inner identity; she treads the balance without a care.

    Highlights in the new collection included the various elements of 90's styling, from uber-minimalist hair and make-up, monochrome colours and platform sandals, which gave each look a more accessible edge. I adored the head-to-toe crisp white outfits, which felt super refreshing, as well as the subtle styling tricks that will be flooding the street style scene in no time, like the singular long sock or long glove, oversized bag worn at the waist, and the layering of multiple fitted tops and dresses with holes in different areas.

    But what do you think of #RickOwensSS18? Check out every look from the show here, photos via NOWfashion:
