'Gothic grunge' is bandied about as the best way to describe Rick Owens collections over the years. For sure its lazy but not off the mark and the influences of both youth subcultures are there to see, and if anything Mr Owens' influences are stomping down and being heard on multiple runways of Paris of late. There's also a sense of romanticism from the past, couture-esque fits, tribalism and with his adidas collaborations a sense of the future. Personally, I like the fact that its never changed, he is what he is and there's no U-turn in style or content. Whether its your 'look' or not, if you like 'fashion' his shows checking out on Vogue Runway.

The Drkshdw collection in store at J+O takes these runway influences, cuts and styles and offers a sophisticated ready-to-wear collection for both men and women.

Here's a little selection of runway shots from over the years. Enjoy.
