Rick Owens Spring/Summer 09

Are they nuns? Is it a reference to ancient Egypt? A nod to (my favorite novel) The Handmaid's Tale? Are they druids? Does it even matter? Well, yes. He named the collection, "Priestesses of Longing" so it's fair to say that nature, lust, and religion were inspirational for him.

I was blown away by Rick Owens Spring/Summer 09 collection yesterday. I always think of him as being the king of furs and leathers but his minimalist approach for ready-to-wear has me swooning. 

I think I would enjoy wearing such beautifully crafted hoods and wings and veils.

I think people look and see confusion but when broken down these pieces are actually very wearable. Look past the phenomenal but unrealistic runway styling and you see well made separates like trumpet leg pants, a-line coats, and bias cut dresses.

Loved the cut-outs in this collection, but not too fond of the Flying Nun headpieces! Great roundup!

if every character in stargate hit it with a convent in the early 1900s, their babies would come out in this garb. i dig it.
