RICK OWENS

TUNGSTEN: leather jacket and cotton pants, 2006. Rick Castro.
FASHION DESIGN, 2007

Drama and the masterful manipulation of fabric are hallmarks of Rick Owens’s (American, b. 1962) design sensibility. Featuring drapery and contrasting materials held together by the equivalent of infrastructure, his otherworldly garments are in fact sculptural compositions whose fluid geometries flow over the body. The jacket shown here exemplifies his interest in futuristic silhouettes and material juxtapositions.
