Rick Owenspresented Spring Summer 2020 collection on Thursday, September 26th, during the recently wrapped up Paris Fashion Week. Named after Owens’ grandmother’s maiden name, Tecuatl, the collection explores designer’s south-of-the-border roots.

Linear motifs used in shoulder straps on dresses and mega-lacing on duchesse bomber are inspired by Josef and Anni Albers’ exploration of archaeological sites in Mexico and their reductive modernism applied to pyramids and hieroglyphics.
