Otherworldly at Rick Owens

Beams of light fell into sharp round white spots all over the runway, like giant polka dots or a constellation of bright stars. This lighting punctuated the collection, with the models dipping in and out of the spotlights, so to speak, while the music insisted, “I saw the moonlight on you, I didn’t want to wake you up.”

Less Is Fleur at Dries Van Noten

The first few exits at Dries Van Noten served as a continuation from his fall men's collection, which took place in Paris less than six weeks ago. And, in fact, they included some of the same garments, in particular the grid puffer scarves and suiting — and why not? The system is moving so fast, and it is no secret that the Van Noten women’s customer is equally at home wearing his men’s as she is wearing his women’s (one need only look around the venue to see this), so it seemed fitting that the designer himself addressed this so directly, if indirectly.

China Meets Peru at Kenzo

Entering the show space today could only be described as stepping through the looking glass into an underground dreamworld. The work of Peruvian artist Pablo Amaringo was used to great effect; his exotic imagined animals in rich hyper-saturated colors were the perfect backdrop to the clothes.

Elder Respect at Junya Watanabe

There’s a bar in Shibuya called Grandfather’s that has been around for over 40 years, with a huge collection of vinyl. You can request music by writing a song name on a beer mat and handing it to the lady who controls the record player. Her knowledge of the records and where they are placed (imagine finding a single disc among 2000 records) is astonishing, and the music is non-stop, with track after track blending into one another.

Comme des Gar?ons Goes Goth Metal

An industrial throb, humming and rustling, punctuated by feedback guitar squeals, greeted us in the packed dark basement for Comme des Gar?ons Homme Plus. It felt more like an underground club than a runway venue. The path was barely visible as we snaked our way into position to wait with a satisfying mechanical heartbeat lulling us into a false sense of security. A loud drum kicked us into reality as the music and models burst into action.

Peaceful Military at Yohji Yamamoto

The light was searingly bright in the Yohji Yamamoto space, as the ceiling had been modified to include hundreds of white strip lights. It was like gallery lighting for visitors on Adderall — a visual palate cleanser.

Nod to Michael Jackson at Louis Vuitton

Virgil is the fashion zeitgeist right now, and whether he’s aware of it or not, he’s firmly at the wheel. The invitation for today’s show arrived as a plastic-wrapped bejeweled white glove — a hat tip to the collection’s main inspiration, Michael Jackson. The show took place on a theatre-set backdrop of Ludlow Street in New York's Lower East Side neighborhood, replete with storefronts and cobblestones. Here, Abloh managed no small feat; he made the experience of a major Louis Vuitton show feel intimate.

Dizzyingly Poetic at Dries Van Noten

A complicated soundscape, made up of sound bites and snippets of music featuring Bowie, Warhol, and many more artistic heroes made up the soundtrack to the show, which in itself, couldn’t have been less complicated. The focus here was on perfect clothes, and what a focus.

Glam Rick

Today was surprisingly upbeat for Rick Owens, but less so if you’d seen his Instagram posts over the last few days. He teased an image of Kiss followed by a clothing label marked “L.LeGaspi,inc NEW YORK.” Larry LeGaspi was the designer behind the looks for Kiss and the 70s girl group Labelle. Owens has been thinking a lot about LeGaspi of late, and for good reason: he's working on a book about him.
