The look The designer channelled minimalist silhouettes with a gothic undertone.
Key pieces Leather halter tops were clean and cut below the waist, while extremely long and fabric-heavy maxi skirts were a key component of almost every look. A palette of grey and black gave this spring collection a very cold and dark aesthetic. Collars were cut high, while long, layered grey dresses injected drama.
Commercial appeal The length of the skirts plugged into the extra-long maxi skirt trend, which is key for spring 11. Other than that, the collection re-enforced Rick Owens’ technical brilliance and the icy palette’s importance for spring 11.
Footwear and accessories Sandals had a slight platform and were adorned with tulle ruffle cuffs in muted shades of green and cream. Horn-like hair accessories were key.
