So, as I went through my Twitter feed, I noticed an unusual picture from the Rick Owens S/S 16 CYCLOPS fashion show. A model was pictured walking down the runway with not only the clothes from the designer on her body, but also another model on her shoulders…

Now I’m all for doing something different and out-of-the-box, yet I could not understand the artistic meaning of this. Also, it made me wonder were the models light-headed afterwards or did they just go about walking perfectly fine once they got down? The two images below show a great contrast that caused me to ask that question, as one model’s neck is severely red, while the other appears perfectly normal as if she were upright.

All in all, the models were actually presentingΒ a great collection that in my opinion showcased minimalism with a pop color in between.

But I want to know what are your thoughts on this and do you think the designer went too over the top with his presentation or that he was dead on? Comment below and until next time…

Peace, Love, Blessings, & Hugs
