rick owens takes a piss, but it is regrettable. a fool and his money are easily parted.
"John Collier the window to watch" This sweaty looking androgynous thing at Rick Owen's show is no advertisement for Rick Owens, or fashion of any sort. If the creature had a magnificent cleavage, then perhaps it would be interesting. All he needed is a bit of regrettable piece of loo roll between the cheeks. I gather we are Owen's therapist, as he never felt confident about his body as a child? Shit, my favourite designer has now hit rock bottom? Since there are no barb wire or studs, it is not fetish wear. It is not sequins and kinky boots either. Does it come in all sizes and colours. Is this day wear?
What is it about these designers who slag off England, Jews and now this, pressing the self-destruct button. Can you imagine the eight times Oscar winner Edith Head doing this?
It is base, seedy, unattractive and a load of bollocks. It is indecent and children could see this. The only photoshops I've seen are a tiny blur. Clearly we can all be fashion models. With "Strap on Jane" at least you did not have to make a cup of tea. This is the lowest form of wit. Despite the compliments from my favourite journalist, Tim Blanks, and my great sense of humour, I am bored, not impressed.
"If this is day wear I cannot wait to see the evening wear," says my showgirl friend Miss Julia Laverne. He insults classical sculpture and his ego is out of control, he is not Leonardo da Vinci, maybe he should have more Play-do as a child? "If in doubt get the dick out."
My point is this: When we are having political problems with the Muslims, and the French are not being able to get their pencil sharpened, surely this, in Paris right now, is not intelligent. If Rick wants to feel better about his youth then get his own cock out. He should not expect his models to do this. Do the models really want this in the closeup section? The internet stays forever, does Rick really want to be owning up to mental problems, he probably thinks he has been very clever. It is regrettable. He believes that he can charge as much money as possible. A fool and his money are easily separated. I am not so sure. Owens is clearly not watching the news.
I wonder what Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroewould say. What must the Muslims think of this? Why is it okay to say it is art or fashion? It is making fashion a political problem, therefore fashionistas become the problem. This is only going to put petrol on the flames. To convince people to do it. It shows you that everybody has run out of ideas.
There are certain types of Muslims who believe that we are totally debauched, and this will do us no favours.
I love fashion, the beauty new ideas, but this once talented man, Rick Owens, now needs therapy—urgently. One minute it is Rick Owens and the next it is House of Oxfam.
