“Gethsemane was the garden where Jesus prayed the night before his crucifixion, a place of uneasy repose and unease before the final reckoning. We're all living through a tense era in history, waiting for a resolution, be it disastrous or sensible, amid a suspense that feels almost biblical in scale—primitive and profane."
The garments are done in monochrome tones, offset by splashes of dust tones to emphasize the dramatic shapes, drawing inspiration from our "Tense period in history" and Owens' sarcastic perception of conventional masculinity. Jackets and shorts are plagued by raw seams, with slashes displaying hands and inner layers.
Owens' interpretation of suppressed fury and aggression, which he channeled from the pandemic, continues in the Gethsemane collection. Shop the latest selections from Rick Owens here.
