Normally, I wouldn’t write about penis-baring on the runway. I talk fashion, shopping, statement booties. However, it appears Rick Owens’s Fall 2015 menswear show is causing quite a stir. And it’s not because of his well-structured coats or gasp-inducing knitwear. It’s because several of his brooding models strutted down the runway with their penises in full view (still gasp-inducing, but, ya know, for different reasons).
This wasn’t a wardrobe malfunction either; it was intentional. As in: Owens’s designs included strategically placed cutouts to highlight the groin. It’s not the first time Owens caused a stir on the runway. For his spring 2014 collection, he made a powerful statement about increasing diversity in fashion by replacing models with a fierce step team.
But as is obligatory with anything penis-related (I’m looking at you, Justin Bieber), people had funny things to say.

No other designer collaboration has sparked as much vitriol as the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection. The announcement was initially met with glee. Yay! Lilly! The bluebloods come down to earth! Red plastic Target would turn into a porcelain teapot of floral shifts! Lilly—God rest her soul—would surely be cheering in her grave at the thought of her clothing—a happy accident, really, the outcome of a fruit juice stand venture (to camouflage fruit stains, she fashioned simple dresses out of colorful floral-print cotton)—now being made available to the masses! Think about it: Instead of going to stuffy debutante balls, she rode donkeys. She’d want everyone to wear her clothes.
Not so fast. These people were misinformed. Lilly, a Palm Beach socialite, they said, would not be happy. In fact, she’d be “turning over in her grave!” Refinery29 rounded up 39 reactions from these furious Lilly die-hards, many of them sounding like classist, bratty sorority mean-girls.
