For Rick Owens’ Paris Fashion Week® FW24 show, the designer opened the doors to his Parisian home and welcomed 300 guests, dedicating his new collection, titled “PORTERVILLE”, to his humble upbringing in Sierra Nevada. 

Owens’ collection featured a range of ribbed knitwear, hooded capes, enlarged footwear, wide-shouldered tops, flared skirts, cropped bomber jackets and collarless blazers that expanded his dark and sinister universe.

The designer noted: “In past interviews, I have mentioned my stern father not allowing a TV in the house. But I underplayed the significance of what he replaced it with — opera,”.

“Stories of aching, longing and disappointment, set to rapturous music reaching for transcendency by Puccini, Wagner, Purcell, Strauss…and every evening he would softly read Edgar Rice Burroughs paperbacks to me.” 

Owens used this collection to bring these characters to the catwalk, designing interpretations of heroes and villains, highlighting the world he longed to leave Porterville for.
