A wind machine and big blocks of dry ice created the wintry backdrop for Rick Owens's Fall 2013 show, a dramatic fusion of Japanese tailoring and fabric mixing.

Like some of today's other notable shows, this one was rendered entirely in black and white — not surprising, considering Owens usually sticks to that palette. What was surprising was perhaps how wearable this collection was: a kimono-style jacket was cinched with an obi-style belt that actually laced the black upper part of the bodice to white fabric underneath, and a few black wool jackets were accented with asymmetrical lapels in shearling. It all looked like a warm defense against the cold and blowing wind — which appeared to ravage the models' crimped and teased hair as they came down the runway.
