Did Rick Owens bare penis fashion inspired collection do the trick?

Rick Owens was either taking the piss out of the audience and his idea of fashion or quite possibly examining heady gender basis ideas when he sent his male models thumping down a Parisian catwalk with their penises exposed.

By now one imagines seasoned editors have seen it all, exposed female nipples, exposed bottoms, bare breasts, check yes to all, but on Thursday they also all got to check yes to bare penises.

The machinations were quite simple. Send four of your models down the runway wearing clothes with peepholes that showed full-frontal male nudity underneath. Sit back and wait for the world to notice and write about you.

Whether editors choose to write about the clothes remains to be seen, but then again perhaps any type of press and announcement to the greater world that your label exists might be worth the fuss and inconvenience of sending out penis hanging models. Who knows maybe other menswear designers may resort to sending out their models in unicycles with horns along with a bum peephole to really catch attention? Or maybe not?

And whilst audience members and editors alike were initially flummoxed it would begin to draw on them, that this being Paris, the American designer had aimed to break some taboos and re position what we really mean by fashion and whether what we decide to wear is more virtuous than the identity of the wearer along with the daring of the apparel maker.

Since the success of the show, social media has taken in swarms to discuss the show, with the following handles trending #DickOwens and #Freethepeen.

Added the designer after the show backstage: ‘Nudity is the most simple and primal gesture – it packs a punch. It’s powerful. It’s a straight world now. It says something about being independent.’

‘Who else can really get away with this stuff? It’s a corporate world! This was our private moment.’

What do you think? Will you be sashaying down the boulevard with your new Rick Owens 2015 fall fashion peep accoutrement too …?

    A little too obvious, I think. It appears as though that’s the feature with these garments, rather than a discreet glimpse into the anatomy.

    If this is what freedom of expression and speech is all about, keep it in Europe and America where they have lost all morals. I would rather cover my bits with animal skins than to cover my body in cloth and expose my bits. Where is the law on indecent exposure, does it not exist anymore? Shame on you. Why send models out why didn’t the designer come out dressed them same way, reason – he is ashamed. Bloody bigot.
