The world of Rick Owens is post-apocalyptic and foreboding. This is in stark contrast to the exquisitely draped and delicate lines often featured in his collections. A satisfying mix of grunge and glamour, the Paris-based eponymous label has garnered enormous success since opening its doors in 1994. With a penchant for darkness, Owens is a master of crafting wearable statement pieces in the color black. Influences ranging from postmodern architecture to glam rock legends yield both sculptural and streamlined silhouettes that are gender neutral in design. An effortless cool exudes from the immaculately constructed leather jackets and elevated basics, all of which echo the grandeur of his other-worldly fashion shows.
