One of the highlights of the Paris Fashion Week schedule, Rick Owens’ shows at Palais de Tokyo always draws a crowd of like-minded fashion goth overlords. The designer’s SS17 womenswear show was no different, as fashionistas from all over the globe descended on Paris to worship at the alter of the Dark Lord himself.

Unsurprisingly, the looks on show are all variations on Owens’s unique brand of dark brutalism, with elongated, drapey cuts, jagged color-blocked motif and weirdo styling. The palette was Rick personified: black, black and more black (he does actually like color sometimes though). Head to slide #20 to see the man himself marching out of the venue with his muse and co-overlord, Michele Lamy.
