Rick Owens live streamed his ready-to-wear 2021 fall-winter womenswear collection named Gethsemane. Owens used biblical references and the current worldwide crisis as an inspiration for the collection.
The show started with a smoke-filled background, cloudy weather with grey skies setting the tone for the show and creating a sense of eeriness — perfect for the collection. Rick Owens mainly utilised cream and dark colours such as black and shades of greens and purple. The statement looks were the deconstructed puffer coats which were exaggerated and oversized in appearance. There were variations of outerwear styles that took elements from the puffer coat, such as just the body without sleeves. Other key looks we saw are the exaggerated shoulder pads, asymmetrical garments, and distressed pieces. With so much happening in this collection, it almost became chaotic.
