Crowd Surfing at Rick Owens During Paris Fashion Week

No one likes Rick Owens. If you’re into Rick Owens, you love Rick Owens. And some people who love the American-turned-Parisian designer basically live and breathe the brand.

Come Fashion Week, those people make for the best kind of circuscostumes, paparazzi, paparazzi for the paparazzi, and curious onlookers who might have no idea what’s actually going on. And then, of course,Anna and Giovanna. We got thoroughly caught up in the devotees and their amazing style on Thursday afternoon before the runway presentation at Palais de Tokyo, and then we entered the show to find the most extraordinary thing: pastel feathers and gentle, sloping accents of color.

Once inside Rick’s traditional runway home—a cavern-like basement at the museum—these characters felt especially at ease. We can’t help but wonder what they thought as the bright yellows and pale whites appeared on the runway though. And the feathers, too—which were mainly threaded into large cape-like pieces best seen from the back, where they seemed to make the models into rare and exotic birds.

As if to counter the unusual amount of light tones, the soundtrack was a mix of Nina Simone′s rendition of “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair” and her version of “Wild Is the Wind.”
