The Rick Owens Spring 2011 Menswear runway show switched up models for cyborgs to strut down the runway in monster boots. The veil theme is recurring; Rick Owens' SS '09 women's collection has also veils inspired by Egyptian pharaohs.

Of course, I shouldn't even have to mention the black and white (with peppers of brown) color palette for the Rick Owens Spring 2011 collection. It is Rick Owens, the prince of darkness, after all.

Implications - Cyborgs were once considered something from a far off world; however with the presence of blockbuster movies like Avatar exploring alternative universes, consumers are becoming much more accepting of a deviation away from reality.
