Freaky or Fabulous? Nun Caps and Flippers at Ricks Owens

I was just praising Rick Owens for his delectable leather jackets, and now I have to switch gears due to the accessories in his Spring '09 collection. I get that he's avant-garde and always serves up extreme trends, but since when did nun caps become vogue? They're better left for Fraulein Maria if you ask me. As if the caps weren't enough, almost all of the models were sent down the runway in flipper-like leather boots. I love funky footwear but these are plainly unflattering. What's your opinion about Rick Owens's Spring accessories — freaky or fabulous?

I read about this in the Times this morning. He missed the mark. Kinda tacky

The girls are is the fashion. Sometimes I wonder about these designers, but his leather jackets are AMAZING! Maybe he was just having a bad day when he designed these.... And seriously, the flippers? WTF!

Beyond Freaky and into Frightening. Boo to shock tactics to garner column inches and distract from meh clothes!

It looks like the first model is wearing a cape, in addition to the lovely headgear and I'm pretty sure my nephew has one just like it that came with his Batman Halloween costume. If I borrow it, all I have to do is buy the habit to instantly transform into Super Nun!

I don't have a problem with the hats, I think they're weird but one weird element is fine to catch your attention. the shoe things, on the other hand, are horrific and need to go.

Bad, bad, bad! What self-respecting designer would have his models wear these?

I thought it was fabulous. There is an underlying meaning here that people are just not getting. Very contemporary.

I like the first and second dresses... but the caps and flippers are terrible, they totally distract from what would be a fantastic, yet severe, dress. There's just such a thing as too much avant garde!

So bizarre...I can appreciate fashion as art but this isn't even impressive, just strange.

Completely ridiculous. But the designer's point is obviously to make such an impression (albeit negative) that the publicity flows. Sad that that's the way it works sometimes. :/
