So we kicked off Paris Fashion week SS13 with non other than our beloved Rick Owens! We headed east of Paris all the way to Bercy to be greeted by a wall of tumbling foam spilling onto the runway….
With the theme of his latest collection “Island” it seemed rather appropriate as it’s a collection all about “the serenity and calm we’re all looking for with the pursuit of clean rational lines as satisfying as an ocean’s horizon, and the quiet acceptance of self that comes to us every once in a while in isolation”…..all that was needed to complete the setting was sand between our toes and a cocktail in one hand…
Colors were copper, sand, flesh, dark shadow with moments of warm silver hammered leather and shiny black python – contrasted with sculpted wigs with a center parting that were shaped into full on volumized geometric bobs!
We loved the extreme hair so much that we headed back stage to get up close and personal with the wigs….We were SO tempted try one on….
Continuing our little sejour backstage, we congratulated Rick on a fabulous collection, and also snapped a photo of him with his charming mother….
We then chatted with Rick’s wife and muse Michele Lamy who we we simply adore!
Post show we bumped into Suzy Menkes (excuse the back shot!)
