RICK OWENS : a tone poem to the women's fall line

for a man to do both genders so well,
it's kind of amazing.
-
rick's early adopters were women who understood how to take his more extreme work,
mix it into their wardrobes,
and use the edge to individuate, not isolate, themselves.
-
now, with his work in fur,
there's a "ball it up and go" quality that his leathers had,
yet a luxe quality that is new.
-
it's modern, yet old world.
-









-
huh.
realize i just wallowed in the fur and leather end of his line,
while there is so much more to it.
-
but i think there is a subversion to working proudly in the medium
that speaks to him clearly as a personality.
these are pieces not for show,
but to be handled,
worn,
taken out to challenge the environment and the world.
-
plus,
i loves me some fuzzy pretty things.
-
I KNOW!
