Looking at the pieces, they are an extension of recent previous seasons...not a big surprise. What I like about this is that he is most often thought of a designer that cuts super small / slim, and that his pieces only work for really skinny people, when in fact, a lot of his cutting is on the larger size and works really well for bigger bodies. The women I have seen who rock Rick Owens the most are not stick thin...

Those ladies look fierce [need to watch the video btw] and his designs can and do work on larger people but but he could've bothered to make certain outfits fit properly.

Resorting to a stompin (and dreadful) gimmick when the designs aren't particularly good. Artist indeed.

I agree with that, but in my opinion it's not so much because the models are not your typical white skinny women, but because of his models' faces. They are so unbelievably distracting to me. I don't know if they make these grimaces because they were told to look as 'martial' as possible or if it is something that just comes with the choreography and the dancing, but it really is a bit much for my taste.

What the devil? I saw this and went "what?". It's just too gimmicky. I would have liked it better if he had just used more diversity in his casting with professional models.

Unfortunately, models look the way they do for a reason. They are not supposed to be distracting. What's the point in having a fashion show if you're there to distract the audience from your clothes?

Rick is just a genius.

He doesn't need to please anyone, it's all about instinct there. I am so happy such a talented designers has the guts to show his garments on not regular models.

Those girls rule.This show is a celebration of life, diverstiy, it's fun. That's what fashion used to be in the past, remember ?

Orange Is the New Black reference? Even one of the ladies reminds me of Taystee.

Yes, that´s it. I don´t have any problem with black models nor big sizes. It was just the choreography and the models´ face expression that prevented me from seeing the clothes.

We can always rely on Rick to bring us something new, funny and excting and this was no exception. I NEED to see the video cuz I already love this idea just looking at the photos and I can't even imagine how fantastic the show was. Besides a fashion show this was an artistc presentation, bless him for doing this

He'll get back to using smaller pale models next season, so whatever.

The clothes look great, the presentation stunning. I wonder if y'all would be complaining if this same style of presentation was done on the typical thin models?

Rick has strong ties to the hip-hop world... this just fits him so well!
