Rick Owens S/S 2014
Paris, 26th September 2013. Rick Owens has raised the bar.
White chicks? Skinny models? Walk-pose-exit-straightface runway show? Forget those. We got something better for you: Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2014 show.
The show was a step dance performance. As if the show wasn’t unusual enough, the cast is truly something different from hundreds of shows we’ve been seeing from New York, London, Milan and Paris in this fashion month. It was performed by step dancer girls, and what makes it different is, the majority of them are black, and all of them are plus sizes.
Of course, there’s definitely debates about the presentation. Some love it. Some hate it. Some confused. Of course, when you see the runway pictures in Style.com you won’t see the usual thing. You’ll be confused, especially if you don’t watch the video of the show. But surely, you can tell something is going on.
I think the message is crystal clear. Fashion is an interpretation of visual beauty. And most of the time, fashion didn’t represent universal beauty. Fashion often represent only one form of beauty: White and skinny. Which is a shame, because fashion should be representing universal beauty. And when you’re not in on of the “white” or “skinny” category, people valued your self less. You, valued your self less.
Even if it’s not the best collection, this is the best show, best casting of Spring/Summer 2014 for me.
Rick Owens is breaking all rules, murdering all stereotypes of fashion with this show. The message is crystal clear here: DIVERSITY
This is a “FUCK YOU” in the face for all stereotyping in fashion industry.

Gesaffelstein Premieres His Dark Debut
Gesaffelstein premiered his debut LP, Aleph, on Bromance today, and it’s 14 dark glimpses into the mind of one of tomorrow’s top techno and beats superstars.
He changes tempo with spacious and meditative tracks like Nameless, and sexy, strutting 100-BPM in Destinations, Obsession, and the already-heard Hate or Glory. But long-time fans of the G-man aren’t to worry, there’s plenty of good, ol’ fashioned, heavy Gesaffelstein to go around in items like Duel and Pursuit.
He toys with new concepts in tracks like Hellifornia, built around a squealing West Coast synth lead, serving as a presumable tribute to the LA hip hop scene yet modified to be a bass-lover’s cruising jam.
The French techno scientist puts some extremely interesting experiments into play on Aleph, and as a whole, it’s an impressive and bold first at-bat for the budding beatsmith. Listen to the whole album here on Pitchfork, and pick it up here on iTunes.
