Rick Owens Stages Paris Menswear Show on Sky-High Scaffolding

Talk about taking fashion to new heights. 

Rick Owens presented his spring '18 menswear show today in Paris, and had models strut down a most unusual catwalk: special scaffolding constructed for the event hundreds of feet in the sky, enveloping the magnificent Palais de Tokyo.

"It was really about exploring this building which is my favourite building in Paris," Owens told Dazed. "So being able to put all the scaffolding and being able to climb all over it. It was almost like I was physically able to touch every little piece of it. Clothes are aspirational and putting them on the highest level, it makes them more heroic."

The clothing was presented in a palette of neutrals: blacks, whites, grays, and greens, and reflected a modern art, minimalist, deconstructed suiting vibe. There was a good deal of shiny pleather-like material, as well as jackets without sleeves, baggy belted creations, across-the-body accessories, and tops with organically-shaped holes scattered about them.

Guests were given black fans, black bucket hats and black water bottles to stay cool and witchy in the scorching Parisian summer heat.
