Rick Owens Men Fall 2011: Poetic & Visual

PARIS, Jan 22, 2011 / FW/ — A little bit of Goth, a little bit medieval and some touches of fantasy, Rick Owens continues his epical approach to fashion where the heroes while strange and mysterious also exudes a larger than life presence.

A master of his craft, Rick Owens continues to evolve his own style. Though we are very familiar with the Rick Owens code, every season we see a new permutation – as the effect of crumpled leather skirt in the form of a trapezoid, shoes turn into boots, gauntlets and fingerless gloves.

The additions seem minor and usually very subtle, like a shade of blue added to a predominantly black collection, give a new facet to his creativity. Rick Owens clothes are like our favorite fantasy novel that we re-read and re-read; and each time we find something new when we come back to it.
