The fog machines at Rick Owens were pumping the scent of his new collaboration with Aesop into his show space at the Palais de Tokyo. Models also carried thuribles, modern mechanized versions of the censers that priests use to dispense incense in church. Owens was a Catholic school boy. In a pre-show interview, he talked about his upbringing: “thinking and talking about morality in school all day and studying Cecil B. DeMille’s 1930s Art Deco black-and-white interpretation of the bible,” by night. “That’s what formed me,” he said with a laugh. “I’m so transparent.” How many of us can relate?

What is a Rick Owens show without black? the designer enhanced the labels DNA with new iterations of the designer’s signature Kiss, Beatle Bozo, and Tractor boots, now cult classics. Opening with Owens’ design collaborator and longtime muse Tyrone Dylan Susman, who was clad in a pair of black leather boots paired with a metal vest akin to last season’s necklaces and a wrap skirt, there was much anticipation as for what was to come next.

Owens spent the pandemic in Venice, which isn’t far from his Italian factory. But analyzing and explaining his motives here is a little beside the point. This was a beauty of a Rick Owens collection, starting with a full complement of evening dresses, including a few Oscars red carpet contenders in “dusty sequins,” draped with evocative asymmetry from the shoulders and featuring collapsing volumes at the back or around the hips.

Cropped and shrunken jackets and lean and languid bias-cut skirts caught a bit of the Old Hollywood glamour. Owens combined peach and apricot, and a whole spectrum of oranges. The yellow and aqua blue pairings inevitably conjured visions of the Ukrainian flag.
