PARIS -- Rick Owens showed his spring-summer 2013 collection at Paris Fashion Week with a wall of foam bubbling over onto the runway. Models with flying saucer-like hairstyles emerged out of the darkness as if from another world.
The look: Futuristic, regal. Lighter than air. Crinkled metallic bubble-shaped dresses over filmy layers. Coccooning tunics (some covered in dancing white threads as fine as marabou feathers). Shearling vests with squared-off necklines framed in black. Sheer, lean skirts slit up the back . Silvery robes fastened with a large gold disc in front. Sandal boots.
