Rick Owens Spring 2012
Sometimes it takes a while for me to warm up to a collection, even by one of my favourite designers. Rick's last spring collection was one of those, and looking at it now I can say that I must have been bat-shit crazy. Nevertheless, once I had some time to stare at the photos in the time between the runway show and when garments actually hit the stores (and in some cases, when they were on their way out of stores!), I came to really love Rick's Spring '12 vision. Seeing things in person really helps. I even came to like the rusty orange!
I'd love to get my hands on a few items, namely one of the oversized leather cord tied tunics and a matching slim-line maxi skirt, not to mention one of the flare-sleeve jackets on the bottom row.
