From the iconic SS16 (Cyclops) collection, Rick Owens refined his Moto Jacket cut with soft thick calf leather giving it a rather structured look. Like most other looks in cyclops this jacket was strongly influenced by militaristic aesthetics. The zipper is angled across the front panel of the jacket complementing the asymmetrical subtle details. Featuring many pockets and high quality zippers this jacket along with other Rick jackets is one that can withstand a lifetime.
For cyclops, Rick Owens instructed his models to walk the runway sporting fur covered tubes over the head blocking their peripheral vision. Rick described the philosophy behind this with a metaphor on masculinity: “This Rick Owens spring summer 2016 men’s collection is titled Cyclops a monster with a narrow focal point. I can see this in myself in my determined urge to find the straightest line from point a to point b as quickly as possible. A trait I have always assumed is mostly a masculine one. And I’m constantly trying to make sure this ambitious urge for efficiency and control doesn’t teeter over into aggression. I suspect a lot of other men wrestle with that too.”

Number (N)ine FW09 Layered Silk Floral Jacquard Light Jacket. FW09 was the magnus opus for Takahiro Miyashita as he exited N(N) -- what his fans thought was his permanent departure from his creative aspirations. The collection featured 18th and 19th century influences with intricate tailoring and masterful craftsmanship. One of the more costly collections, Miyashita's FW09 creations featured layered pattern silk for lining, embossed floral designs and velvet appliques. This is the most detailed version of the jacket featuring an embossed floral design throughout the silk outer with the silk floral lining extending from the edges of the jacket.
Continuing the interview with Takahiro Miyashita, the focus shifts towards the stylist of Number (N)ine: Hirishi Noguchi. Long term N(N) stylist chimed in on Miyashita's outlook with the brand stating that "Miyashita wasn't partial to the brand since 2007". This occurred after his 2006 "Axl Rose" collection which Miyashita debuted as a "joke", but the audience's reaction was too stern for the designer, leaving him disappointed. He was expecting Miyashita to step down from Number (N)ine since fall of last year so it didn't come to a surprise when the announcement came 08 of January. Noguchi then knew that the following collections were purely out of the designer's creative aspirations with little interest in monetary return. The interview closed with Noguchi stating that he sat back, understood the path that Miyashita was taking and simply "watched him run".
