Tighty-whities are in.

Tighty-whities are in.

The fashion gods heard our prayers. Set in the Gethsemane garden, where Jesus prayed the eve before his crucifixion, a thick coat of fog covers the premise as masked- models walk to the sound of heavy bass trap. “WE’RE ALL LIVING A TENSE PERIOD IN HISTORY WAITING FOR A RESOLUTION, BE IT CATASTROPHIC OR RATIONAL, IN A SUSPENSE THAT FEELS ALMOST BIBLICAL IN ITS DRAMA – PRIMITIVE AND PROFANE,” the Italian-house emphasized in their live stream debut. 

Bad boy never felt so good. Leather and shearling coats and jackets draped the runway, while integrated gloves and over the face coverings made for appropriate protection from the cold and perhaps even COVID.

Leather bodysuits were a staple among most looks, but honestly, what is Rick Owens without leather? Offset by extravagantly shaped shoulders tailored coats and cropped bombers, serves as a digestible serving of avant-garde for those who play safe in style. 

Playing off the evangelical nods, hooded robes sauntered on the scene, composed of duvet and dense recycled cashmere yarns, which can also be seen on sweaters peel down on the body. 

But, most importantly, tighty-whities are back and paired with thigh-high fur cowhide boots – in the iconic Black Kiss platform – and coats derived from recycled plastic waste. Custom oversized jeans woven by Yamaashi Orimono dragged cool concrete. Fashion has risen.
