The current ’70s

AP/AFP – A brooding and saucy mood overtook lauded American designer Rick Owens in a 70s-style collection

The show was entitled ‘Larry’, after United States (US) designer Larry LeGaspi, whose silver and black space looks were worn by rock groups such as Kiss.

The show was very much an homage to the bombastic styles of LeGaspi, about whom Owens has written a book.

Tan, sienna, deep vermillion and lashings of black in the clothes were highlighted by sensually dappled lighting.

Excess was simply everywhere.

Enveloping retro shades, peaked shoulders, oversized sleeves, flares and David Bowie-style tight waists set the time-dial very much to the era of Glam Rock.
