BEAUTY: Clothing--Rick Owens

Rick Owens called his '12-'13 FW collection "Mountains" and it does look much sportier than nearly anything he has done in the past. But he did manage to sneak in his de rigeur floor-length skirt-dress that looks so very much like something a priest or monk would wear. And also making an appearance is yet another reference to the 1984 David Lynch film adaptation of "Dune." I posited in a posting that Owens was transfixed/traumatized by the costuming in that film and has been working out his obsession ever since. Just look at the enormous collars of the last two photos... looking like one of the handlers of the Guild Navigators from "Dune."
