My sincerest apologies to those designers who were scheduled to show on the last four days of Paris Fashion Week. You’re all going to need to go home now; Rick Owens just killed the damn thing. The avant-garde designer, beloved for his “luxury gothic” sensibility and his most glorious leather jackets, eschewed all traditional runway stalwarts in favor of a cast of plus-size “steppers.” The ladies first marched out looking hella mean, then burst into what I believe to be a fascinating if somewhat alarming — and very, very unexpected in the context of Paris Fashion Week — dance routine.
