Pochi altri stilisti sono riconoscibili come Rick Owens. Il designer californiano ha lanciato la sua etichetta nel 1994, connotata da un’estetica fatta di colori scuri e linee drappeggiate che è la perfetta antitesi dello stile solare e colorato di Los Angeles. Trasferitosi a Parigi nel 2003, ha potuto fondere la sua estetica con il grunge, arricchendosi di nuove note e crescendo anno dopo anno. Questo fantastico portfolio di grande formato riprende dagli archivi di i-D tutto il materiale più significativo a suo riguardo.
Glamour meets grunge in the dark, dramatic world of Rick OwensThere are a few other designers like Rick Owens, whose work is so instantly recognizable by cut and bias alone. Born in California, Rick Owens launched his eponymous label in 1994. His draped, dark, and perfectly cut aesthetic is the antithesis of the sunshine-saturated, bleached-teeth image of LA, and in many ways has been integral to his success. Owens relocated to Paris in 2003, where his goth meets grunge aesthetic—affectionately known as “glunge”—continues to grow from season and season. Today, Owens is a much loved and respected fixture on the international fashion scene. His vision stretches beyond fashion to include furniture, jewelry, and fur. As well as four fashion collections a year, Owens also designs Lilies, a successful diffusion line that offers a more playful take on the designer’s signature style, a bespoke line of furniture that incorporates everything from antlers to stone and wood, and his own fur collection entitled Palais Royal.
This stunning large format photographic portfolio looks back over i-D’s archives to offer a rare insight into Rick Owens’ all-encompassing world. Highlights include cutting edge imagery from photographers including Corinne Day, Sølve Sundsbø and Hans Feurer, and insightful interviews by Terry Jones, Holly Shackleton, Jo-Ann Furniss and Ben Reardon.
