Rick Owens absolutely stole the show at the Palais De Tokyo in Paris with a Spring/Summer 2019 avant-garde fashion line and an attention-demanding presentation on the catwalk. The silhouettes were characterized by an exceptionally structural aesthetic that caused the models to be literal walking pieces of art. Dubbed 'BABEL,' the overall presentation of the collection alludes to some ominous themes. For one, the emotions behind the designs were listed as "HOPE, DREAD, SERENITY, NIHILISM."

As the models strutted down the catwalk in the captivating avant-garde fashion line, a wooden structure was set ablaze. Encircled by the runway, the burning of the decor piece signified the ritual that the Spring/Summer 2019 collection was intended to present. The Rick Owens womenswear is meant to satisfy the "idiosyncratic" identity of the "powerful, transgressive, and magical" female.
