The sound of Neil Young´s 1970 song "After the Goldrush" accompanied Rick Owens S/S 2017 menswear collection that had been smoothed of the usual hard edges. Overall the clothes are gentler, softer-looking, regardless their complicated draping and exaggerated volumes. Through different techniques of his well-known draping, Owens always proposes new silhouettes, this time more cone-shaped, made of crisp, washed silk gazars and sturdy industrial cottons in a colour palette of off-white, rust, gold and black. There are his typical pyramid-shaped pants discreetly revealing the new sock-like sneakers, as a latest collaboration made with Adidas, and worn under cropped jackets with lengthened sleeves or really tiny ribcage-length bomber and leather jackets, making this way an effect of "lifting the torso", not to mention T-shirts and tops slung and twisted around the body and the shiny embroideries with radiant lines on loose black robes and sculpted tuxedo jackets.
