Rick Owens has introduced his avant-garde take on tailoring at his “TECUATL” Spring/Summer 2020 presentation at Paris Fashion Week Men’s.

There are a number of references to Owens’ Mexican heritage. The collection’s name takes after the designer’s grandmother’s Mixtec maiden name, which came about as a personal reaction to Donald Trump’s ongoing plans to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.

The collection is comprised of colors and cuts synonymous with Owens’ aesthetic, such as black, white and bone floating cape-esque shapes and oversized coats, but also sees a range of bold new looks for this season. Standout pieces from Rick Owens SS20 include the myriad of iridescent pieces, most notably the long-line leather trench with matching baggy trousers, the leather blazer and the belted double-pocket coat — which comes in black and white.

Rick Owens also debuted a collaboration with Champion, taking sports clothes he wore in the ’70s and reinterpreting them as togas, loincloths and briefs, which feature a tonal embroidered Champion “C” logo inside a star-shaped symbol.

Other key looks from the runway in Paris include the gold sequin coat, a black satin funnel neck bomber jacket and the selection of tasseled leather pants. Rick Owens also debuted a number of new footwear offerings for SS20, seeing a pair of platform heel boots, an updated version of the “DIRT” leather hiking boot, a range of new sandals and a daring pair of lace-wrapped sneakers which are reminiscent of the SS19 Running Sneaker.

Take a look at the Rick Owens Paris Fashion Week Men’s SS20 collection in the gallery above.
