The designer showcased his version of Burning Man

For SS19, Rick Owens designed a collection for a coven of witches, who, according to show notes, live in the mountains casting hexes and spells, while searching for order and reason.

Guests arrived to find a flaming A-line structure in the middle of the runway and models dressed in shredded geometric column dresses in shades of black, brown and grey walking solemnly down stone steps holding burning torches.

Owens’ vision is consistently something along the lines of “the world is dark; here are some clothes to survive it in”, and this collection was definitely no different. Otherworldly silhouettes, long capes, floor-sweeping dresses and silk robes ensured a ritualistic feel. Many of the looks were finished with models wearing architectural shapes on their wrists and on top of their heads, which added to the visceral vibe.
