Rick Owens gets inspired by the Victorian era for fall 2023
The collection is called ‘Luxor’
If Saint Laurent went for classically chic with accents on shoulders and waist, Rick Owen follows suit with the same design route but with an edgier approach.
For Rick Owens fall 2023 presentation, the designer retained the DNA of the brand that’s dark, edgy, and contemporarily goth. Finding inspiration from the Victorian era, a lot of the pieces were presented accentuating the waist with the help of overly blown-up shoulders either pointed upwards like horns or spread horizontally giving the illusion of a narrower waist.
While most of the pieces were done in black, this collection made a moment for avocado green and aubergine. Colored looks included furry bomber jacket, velvet long coat, and tattered denim pieces in either skirt or tunics.
While all Rick Owens’ shows were glamorized by the glorious platform shoes, the collection also put a spotlight on straight jacket-inspired outerwear, capes, long leather skirts, motorcycle jackets, and cropped jackets putting emphasis once again to the models’ waists.
