Rick Owens returned to Paris Fashion Week in full force, once again taking over the iconic Palais de Tokyo for a platform-studded show that turned the Parisian skyline pink. Set against a backdrop of neon pink and yellow hues, the Spring/Summer 2024 showcase offered a look at Owens’ “LIDO” collection.
Drawing inspiration from Icelandic artist Björk, the collection took influence from “everyday joy” and offered a series of sculptural garments with extreme platform boots.
