American Mystic

There is no denying Rick Owens has been at the top of his game since he introduced his sophisticated urban silhouettes to the early 90s. His clothes have been widely copied and worn by countless celebrities, from his gorgeous washed leather jackets to shawl-like skinny knits and floor-length skirts in murky tones. Owens loves drama, refinement and singularity but his practical touch always shines through, and comfort and consistency define his designs. Managing to strike the perfect balance between casual and couture, sporty and edgy, Owens surfs the waves of ambiguity with apparent ease. Narrow definitions don’t really work here, both in his private and professional life. Married and bisexual, he’s also a photographer and furniture designer. He has put men in stacked high heels and favors androgynous-looking women. Think glam rock Bowie meets grounded Armani.
