Much like skydiving, walking the runway is intimidating and sometimes it's nice to have a buddy strapped to you. So, caring human and excellent showman that he is, Rick Owens sent his models into his Paris show venue today with pals harnessed to their backs - and sometimes fronts (some of them definitely got a better deal than others) - like knapsacks.

"Human backpacks" may sounds like something Stefon promises from a night at Slash, but the setup was just as real - and almost as dramatic - as the glory-hole pants Owens debuted for fall/winter 15.
