Building off of Spring/Summer 2018’s impressively challenging looks, Rick Owens continues offering subverted menswear for Fall/Winter 2018, debuting another collection of unorthodox clothing.
Dubbed “SISYPHUS,” Rick Owens’ latest range again defies typical menswear styling, with shoulder-slung bags and gilet-like pieces layered over bare chests and earth-toned wools, recalling both Greek togas and prehistoric cave coverings. Raw-hemmed denim shorts, hairy wools and unfinished, dangling threads further the collection’s raw motif. In the past, the designer’s cut-out clothing made headlines for overexposure, but “SISYPHUS” utilizes the technique for clever layering and to emphasize the gracefully idiosyncratic looks. Later, the collection offer breaks from the rougher pieces, featuring (slightly) more conventional overcoats and denim jackets in between the deconstructed, shapeless jackets and silver jumpsuits, with every look boasting Owens’ new chunky boots and running sneakers.
Stay tuned for closer looks of the footwear and clothing as it hits stockists later this year. In the meanwhile, stay informed by following our continuing Paris Fashion Week coverage and check out these DIY Rick Owens x IKEA Geobasket sneakers.
