  1. Concept: A black and white short film capturing the shooting of the designer’s S/S21 lookbook, photographed by Owens himself and starring his Adonis-like muse, Tyrone Dylan Susman
  2. Collection: Power-shouldered jackets which speak of “defiance”, “single and decisive” white lines on black tailoring which suggest “order and reason”, shoulder patches which take inspiration from Larry Legaspi, and a string of other high-voltage designs cut from leather, chiffon, crêpe, stretch denim and recycled plastic
  3. Quote: “PHLEGETHON IS ONE OF THE RIVERS IN THE INFERNO DESCRIBED IN DANTE’S DIVINE COMEDY, NOT QUITE THE CENTRE OF HELL BUT ON THE WAY THERE,” says Owens, writing in his trademark capitalised text. “ROMANTICISING DOOM HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ADOLESCENT MOOD BUT IT’S A CLASSIC WAY TO CONFRONT FEAR AND INSTABILITY – HOPE FOR THE BEST BUT PLAN FOR THE WORST”
