Referencing a DRKSHDW designed inspired by the Chuck 70 Owens noted, “Years ago, I did my own dumber and louder version of these sneakers and this season Converse agreed to craft my crude version onto their original and mutate their signature toe cap. The tongue is extended and the label and license plates are altered to reflect the DRKSHDW collaboration.
Perhaps indicating a pre-election mindset, the Rick Owens collection was titled “GETHSEMANE,” defined by the label as “the garden Jesus prayed in the night before the crucifixion; a place uneasy repose and disquiet before a final reckoning. We’re all living in a tense period in history waiting for a revolution, be it catastrophic or rational, in a suspence that feels almost biblical in its drama, primitive and profane.”
