In a strong move for fashion, designer Rick Owens sent his models down the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week wearing each other.
Yep. They were wearing each other. As in, one model was strapped to another model, then that person walked down the catwalk with another human being attached to them.
His Spring/Summer 2016 collection was a comment on female strength, the weights women have to carry, and how they support each other.
The American fashion designer explained his new look to Dazed, telling them that the collection is ‘about raising women, women becoming women, and women supporting women’. Okay…

And of course the internet had something to say about it:

“When you're too poor to afford Rick Owens, so you wear your best friend.” #PFW

So there you go, don’t be surprised if in Spring 2016 you see people strapped to each other, walking around. Be mildly confused, of course, but don’t be surprised.
