As if being part of the next iteration of fashion wasn’t hard enough, a recent blog post at our international blog on Lenny Kravitz’s troubles at the Rick Owen’s show was less than welcome news. How so? Here’s how so. During the Rick Owens show, Lenny Kravitz had a pretty difficult time negotiating security just to get in and see Owens’ collection. He’s a celebrity, so he gets what he deserves right? uhh… Not so fast. Vogue editors apparently had a fun time trying to get in as well. Ok, so if the celebrities had a hard time, the press had a hard time, heck even some buyers had a hard time getting in to the show, who was in there?
Methinks that Marc Bouwer’s online presentation may have been the way to go for Mr. owens. The question remains though: who was at the show? Apparently there was a first come first serve situation with the rsvp, and then there was also a “preferential” who’s closest to us think going on as well. It’s all well and good, but you have to wonder what Owens’ handlers were thinking not even allowing Vogue editors into the show. That is according to Style. But I am comforted to know that Sarah Mower and even the New York Times’ Cathy Horyn were able to make it in. Every now and again you get your access rights pulled by someone who doesn’t like your review.
In the end Lenny Kravitz was snuck past the security guards a’la Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible and was able to see an essentially Egyptian infused collection. Bravo for Lenny Kravitz.
