Quirky California-born fashion designer Rick Owens sent models down the runway wearing other models for his Spring 2016 show at Paris Fashion Week. The models were fashioned with harness contraptions to affix the models to their backs or strap them upfront as they strutted down the runway in neutral-colored sack-like garments.
Owens told Dazed this “Cyclops” collection is about “women raising women, women becoming women, and women supporting women.” He added, “straps can be about restraint but here they are all about support and cradling. Straps here become loving ribbons.”
It may be a bit hard to think about supporting another woman when her rear is in your face, and you have to carry her!
