Crime of Fashion? Rick Owens clog sandals

Rick Owens clog sandals

Rick Owens is no stranger to the inside of a Fashion Police cell: in fact, we’ve investigated his designs so often we consider him to be something of a master criminal.

Today, we’re taking a close look at the evidence above: one “90mm clog leather wedge sandal”, according to Louisa Via Roma. We’re glad they cleared that up for us: if we hadn’t read the product description, we’d probably have assumed this was some kind of medieval device designed to allow the wearer to plough fields, simply by walking over them. These will set you back no less than £1,517, and just in case you’re looking at  them thinking, “I love them! But what on earth will I wear with them?”, worry not, we have the answer to that right here:

A £465 oversized tulle dress. Awesome.

There are a lot of questions which come to mind when we look at this outfit, but we’ll start with the most obvious one: who on earth wears white knickers underneath their see-through black dress? You’d definitely wear black underwear with this, wouldn’t you? Or maybe nude, to create that, “Haha, tricked you!” effect when people think you’re naked underneath it – which will only be HALF true if you wear it as shown in the photo above. We’d like to be able to assume most people WOULDN’T wear it like that, obviously, but experience tells us differently.

If the outfit above doesn’t grab you, however, perhaps this one will:

The classic Rick Owens, “I couldn’t find my boots, so I just tied two leather jackets to my feet instead” look. It never gets old, does it?
