What suggested COVID-19 to Rick Owens? He sees the hellscape that is the current world situation (the U.S. presidential race, irreversible global warming…). And in his language, the hellscape was assimilated to Phlegethon, one of the five rivers of the Underworld, less famous than the Styx, but just as deadly. In Dante’s Inferno, it was a river of blood that boiled souls.

So, take Phlegethon, throw in some Donna Summer and stir into a fashion show and we got the Rick Owen Spring/Summer 2021 collection.
As he did for his terrific men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2021, Owens revisited some old: fishnet tank dresses, hoodies, architectural tunics and the chiffon shrouds and he injected in there bubblegum pink, major shoulders, thigh-high boots and trailing ribbons.
