Is going commando the new trend? Rick Owens sure seems to think so with his latest runway show for Fall/Winter 2015. The Paris Fashion Week show that is now the talk of the town featured male models in long, flowing garments wearing now pants, no underpants and with just a bit of penis peeking out as the models moved down the runway (some more than others).
The provocative fashion show has lead people to use the hashtag #DickOwens and tongue-in-cheek captions like "just the tip" when talking about the show.
The question is, is this pure runway couture or is it sign of the future? Is it really reasonable to expect men to go commando with little coverage, and in the middle of winter at that?
It's probably unlikely that we'll all just go commando tomorrow, I think underwear is here to stay. But these provocative styles from Rick Owens may play a new role in the underwear world with men's fashions that are more revealing so that your underwear becomes an integral and visible part of your outfit.
