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.
