With this DRKSHDW by Rick Owens jacket:


Dazzle camouflage is what they used to paint on warships in WWI.  If someone was to look at your through a kaleidoscope while you were wearing this jacket I’m pretty sure you’d just cancel out completely.  I have no idea if people still own kaleidoscopes and I can’t even spell the word to save my life, but I’m just throwing that out there.

$1120 over at The Corner if you’re daring enough to pull something like this off.


New for Fall/Winter 2012:


A contemporary take on the classic combat boot.  Interesting that he chose to forgo the laces (even though the loops are still present) in exchange for a side zipper and leather belt style straps at the top.  Seeing as these boots likely won’t see any actual combat, i’m sure the less restrictive rendition will do the job.

With jeans over top I’d wear these, but if you’re expected to wear skinny jeans and tuck them in, that is just a bit too futuristic looking for me.

£907 ($1474 USD) over at HOSTEM London.

You also can check out the Rick Owens website, which as expected is confusing and weird.
