The lord of darkness has struck again, returning to Paris Fashion Week to debut his Spring/Summer 2024 womenswear collection. Rick Owens‘ customary stage at Palais de Tokyo was ignited in tinted fog, smoking front-row attendees in neon pink and yellow hues.

The museum’s outdoor gardens were stormed by Rick soldiers waiting for the big day, revealing the designer’s “LIDO” collection dominated by bold leather silhouettes. Icelandic artist Björk was Owens’ main inspiration, expressing his own interpretation of everyday joy.

For SS24, Rick Owens played with unconventional figures overwhelmed by a demonic presence, seeing black-eyed models walk the runway with an eerie identity. Owens’ signature pointed shoulders protruded from cropped motorcycle jackets and exaggerated vests, while dark brides were vailed in sin. Cylinder-shaped garments arrived larger than life and oozed with futurism, while lattice-like embellishments decorated dramatic outerwear and leather bottoms. Silk ensembles blew against the afternoon wind with cinematic flair, delivering heeled versions of last season’s footcast shoe. SS24 showed the dark lord uplifting his shadowed personality in bold red, burgundy, and pink, looking toward bright days ahead.

Take a closer look at Rick Owens’ SS24 collection in the gallery above, and stay tuned for more Paris Fashion Week content on Hypebeast.
