Published by Rizzoli.
This luxurious large-format book documents the work of the American designer Rick Owens, a transformational figure in contemporary fashion. Defiantly antifashion, Rick Owens’s honest and intensely personal approach to craft has ironically produced some of the most sublime fashion of the last two decades, propelling him to the front ranks of the international avant-garde.
Owens cultivates an elusive appeal-without any express advertising-that has developed into something like an empire. Designed by Owens himself, this volume is full of monumental images detailing all aspects of the designer’s work and sensibility. The visual narrative of this book provides an instructive look at the process of design from an artist who is at once comfortable with innovation and respectful of traditional approaches. ~Rizzoli
