“I like reducing things to what’s essential. I like erasing the unnecessary, doing things shorthand and getting to the point,” says Rick Owens. The minimalistic spirit of the DRKSHDW designer is both an explanation for why his diffusion label name has no vowels, but also what attracts us to the collections time and time again.
Tops with slightly longer hems, shorts that drop just a bit more than expected, macabre patches, and wax coatings are all part of Owens’ minimal rebellious twist on wardrobe staples. While we’ve come to expect Owens’ pallid color palette, the centerpieces amongst this spring collection are the reflective silver flight jacket and high-tops. That being said, DRKSHDW by Rick Owens S/S ’15 will have you standing out day and night.
