RICK OWENS EDFU SS23
MENSWEAR | WOMENSWEAR
Rick Owens unveiled his SS23 collection EDFU at the Palais de Tokyo during Paris Fashion Week, taking inspiration from a recent trip to Egypt.
The collection boasts industrial style jewellery, exaggerated tailoring and heavy draping. With references to couture and an emphasis on moving towards a more sustainable way of making garments and accessories.
'I HAD RECENTLY RETREATED TO EGYPT WHERE I FOUND GREAT COMFORT IN THE REMOTENESS
AND SCALE OF ITS HISTORY. MY PERSONAL CONCERNS AND GLOBAL DISCOMFORTS FELT PETTY
IN THE FACE OF THAT KIND OF TIMELESSNESS'.
The menswear collection boasted tailoring with extreme sculptural shoulders, layers of silk chiffon and rigid mesh. The cult favourite and highly sought after Rick Owens Vintage Sneakers made a return.
'I WANTED SIMPLICITY BUT I STILL WANTED EXAGGERATED SHAPES TO GENTLY TEASE ALL THE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND BIGOTRY THAT CREATE SO MUCH CONFLICT IN THE WORLD'.
