After a photo leak from the Part’s Four studio, it was believed that the name of the fall/winter 2013 collection of Rick Owens was going to to be named “Boner”. For some, it may have come as quite the disappointment when the seemingly working name was replaced by “Plinth”. The plinth was to symbolise a certain stability for which the snow boots constituted the ground. Some were covered in fur, as were the hands and even some jackets. One couldn’t not think of the clothing (not to speak of shoes) of the Inuits. Then again, it is a recurring inspiration for Rick Owens design, especially in regards to the geometric patterns of the fur. Besides the plinth, swagger was what Rick Owens was aiming for in the apporach of the collection. A certain powerfulness to it seen in the oversized sleeves and slim military trousers. Perhaps he thought of the young macho culture of the military. He did still make that that reference to big feet.
