Modelling is Hard: Rick Owens’ high collar jacket

Well, you wouldn’t want to mess with THIS model, would you? Look at the expression on her face! She’s almost daring us to laugh at her high-collared Rick Owens jacket:

For some reason we’re reminded of Darth Vader. Like we say, wouldn’t want to mess with her…

About the jacket, though. Folded down, the collar looks fine:

Standing up, though:

Just a tad higher than we’re used to.

Ah, we don’t know, though. We’re in a pretty good mood today, so we’re actually thinking we might turn a blind eye to this one. After all, at $1,690, it’s not like there’s going to be whole armies of people wearing them, as amusing as that mental image is.

What do you think: send it to jail or set it free?

    It looks like they took fabric from the bottom of the front of the jacket to make the collar.

    This just encourages the Vampire/Twilight trend, and therefore should be shunned. Plus, the way the bottom is cut is very unflattering! When it hits the close out stores, I might pick one up for a costume, though.

    It makes me think of this:

    You know, I love low-budget 80s science fiction television as much as the next person, but I would hardly have called that particular Doctor Who villain a style icon (not in that regeneration anyway).

    Lame Dracula voice: I vant to suck your blood!
    Normal voice: Maybe at Halloween, but certainly not now.

    Just need to extend it to make it a cloak for Count Dracula.

    *sigh* It definitely made me think of Twilight and vampire craziness and the nerds that would want to dress like they’re a vampire in real life.

    All that to say, I’m not getting good vibrations from this jacket. 😉
