Some think designer and fashion star Rick Owens has a few buttons loose, while others see him as brilliant after his latest runway show.

Spectators at Rick Owens Autumn/ Winter 2015 SPHINX show at Paris Fashion Week on January 22 were in for a surprise when they spotted male genitalia peeking out of holes in the designer’s new collection. It didn’t take long for the internet to react, with the birth of hashtag #DickOwens. Many have applauded Owens for his brave choice to introduce more male nudity onto the catwalk, where partial female nudity is more of a norm.

It’s not seen here for reasons of modesty, but Rick Owens has introduced a kind of fully visible frontal crotch cleavage for #Menswear #PFW @rickowensonline. The photographers are freaking out. Reactions?? A photo posted by The Business of Fashion (@bof) on
Some reactions on Twitter to the nudity seen on the runway.
I can’t believe Rick Owens sent dudes in pee-hole ponchos down the runway. That’s either lunacy or genius, but I don’t know which.

Style over function. A whole new level of wrong? #dickowens

His new collection totally affirms my intuition that if I ever met Rick Owens I would not like him. #dickowens Jade (@Jade_E1) January 23, 2015
