How Rick Owens Expresses His Creativity Through Materials

How Rick Owens Expresses His Creativity Through Materials

Pioneer of the underground, Lord of Darkness, a name that needs no introduction. Few words can summarize the impact Rick Owens has made on our cultural climate. For nearly 30 years Owens has transformed the notions of fashion, dominating the avant-garde scene through the use of the unorthodox.
Picking through the minds of renowned designers such as Charles James, Le Corbusier, and Madeleine Vionnet, Rick Owens has experimented with a range of silhouettes and materials to encapture his expansive imagination. Over the years we have seen Owens play with sculptural silhouettes supported by complex, self-supporting internal systems as well as choosing exotic materials to piece these garments together. From bamboo to laminated horse, Owens has used anything he can get his hands on to forge a path of pure artistic expression.

To celebrate Owen’s ingenuity we at Groupie are happy to offer a range of leather outerwear pieces from Owen’s mainline. Kangaroo, lamb suede, cashmere, or light calf - pick your poison.
